Liberty Counsel attorney calls gay adoption 'unconscionable'; Countless able scions 'un' his con

by Jeremy Hooper

In a new One News Now piece where he attacks a transgender child and her lesbian parents, Liberty Counsel attorney and Liberty University Dean Matt Barber surmises that this one family's unique situation is an all-out refutation of the "unconscionable practice of legalized so-called 'gay adoption.'"

So just to unpack all that: When social conservatives like Barber talk about "protecting children," that apparently means (a) stirring up disrespect for one child Screen Shot 2011-10-11 At 9.14.00 Amwhose reality they know nothing about, (b) knocking the legal guardians of countless children in general, putting on record the idea that certain kids' gay parents are all kinds of nasty, so that these growing children and their friends will be greeted with that claim whenever they Google; and ( c) suggesting the solution to the world's problem of more children than there are loving homes is to cruelly disqualify a rich and vital population sect from the process, simply because certain people can't reconcile their faith with the idea that God might actually want LGBT people here on Earth. And they do this, of course, while the people they are crudely stifling ask for little more than to be left the frick alone.

I'll let you decide which approach is more unconscionable.
