Legislation to ban Republican couples from adopting children


In response to the Republican bill banning gay parents from adopting children, Senator Robert Hagan (D-Ohio) says he will introduce legislation to ban Republican couples from adopting. According to Hagan, "credible research'' shows that adopted children raised in GOP households are more at risk for developing "emotional problems, social stigmas, inflated egos, and alarming lack of tolerance for others they deem different than themselves and an air of overconfidence to mask their insecurities."

Hagan admits there is no scientific evidence backing his claims about Republican parents - just as there is none backing Representative Ron Hood's (R-Ohio) bill banning gay parents from adopting. Hood claims that children suffer from emotional "harm" when they are adopted by gay couples. Hagen admits he created his proposal to mock Hood's proposed ban on gay adoption in a way that people would see the "blatantly discriminatory and extremely divisive" nature of the bill.

To the Republicans' credit, their House leadership doesn't support Hood's proposal. But we're guessing they won't support Hagan's, either.

Thanks for caring, Justadog. It's kind of you to be so concerned about liberals' self-destructive behavior. Perhaps liberals should take a hint from conservatives and destroy others instead?

The standard and preferred remedy to speech that one finds disagreeable is more speech.

The previous commenter might contemplate whether such antics are preferable to laws banning speech through adoption of anti-hate legislation.

Funny is surely better, and is more compatible with my religious belief in free speech.
