Adoption Agencies and the Children are Next
The LGBT community is excited about the U.S. Supreme Legislature’s ruling that marriage is a fundamental right found in the United States Constitution. Justice Scalia summed up the majority opinion of the court best when he wrote in his dissenting opinion, “The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie.” Well said! Unfortunately, it appears as if neither the states nor Congress is going to reel in the U.S. Supreme Court, so same-sex marriage is now the law of the land, and the LGBTs can set their sights on other matters such as forcing adoption agencies in America to provide them with children to complete their unnatural relationships.
I guarantee you now that LGBTs have succeeded in getting five unelected “judges” to legalize their relationships, they are going to redirect their attention to churches and adoption agencies. In this article, I am going to address the coming salvos adoption agencies can expect from the LGBTs who are going to make children political footballs and victims of their agenda.
In January, the judge presiding in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit struck down, and subsequently issued a stay on her order, Alabama’s voter-approved (81 percent) “Sanctity of Marriage” amendment to its constitution. The voters of Alabama voted to approve an amendment that prohibited same-sex marriages in the State of Alabama. The case included testimony from four grown children who were forced to live with same-sex “parents.” The four people who were subjected to childhoods with same-sex “parents” testified via amicus curiae briefs. Their briefs were included in an article in the Christian Examiner. The following is lengthy excerpts found in each of their testimonies as reported by the Christian Examiner:
– Robert Oscar Lopez
Mr. Lopez testified that his experiences resulted in a compulsion to have sex with older men as compensation for not having a relationship with his biological father. He testified that his experiences led him to conclude that adoptions by same-sex couples are wrong because the state is using its power to force unwilling children into emotional relationships with people who are obviously not their parents–and this coercion is permanent, harmful, and discriminatory, insofar as all children have a mother and father, but children placed in same-sex-couple homes are stripped of one of these two figures without their consent.”
– Katy Faust
Ms. Faust testified that she opposes gay marriage on the basis of the rights and well-being of children. Faust stated, “Now we are normalizing a family structure where a child will always be deprived daily of one gender influence and the relationship with at least one natural parent. Our cultural narrative becomes one that, in essence, tells children that they have no right to the natural family structure or their biological parents, but that children simply exist for the satisfaction of adult desires. This is truly human trafficking: manipulating children into existence to satisfy the desires of adults.”
– B.N. Klein
Ms. Klein was raised by her biological mother and her lesbian partner “in an atmosphere in which gay ideology was used as a tool of repression, retribution and abuse.” Klein also stated that “the gay community had an obsessive, unhealthy, invasive preoccupation with their children’s sexuality. They in fact encouraged sexual activity because ‘they were open.'”
– Dawn Stefanocwicz
Ms. Stefanocwicz asked the court to respect the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman. She emphasized during her testimony that she had a special perspective from her 30 years of experiences with her “father, his same-sex sexual partners and LGBT subcultures” she encountered. She also relayed to the court that she felt the need to speak up because of “the flawed same-sex parenting research and social science research.”
Stefanowicz testified that she loved her father despite his sexual abuse of her and her brothers, and despite having been “exposed to overt sexual activities like sodomy, nudity, pornography, group sex, sadomasochism and the ilk.” She stated that her “rights and innocence” were violated during her childhood.
The following statement by Klein is a perfect summary of all four briefs:
The gay community has never in my lifetime put children first as anything other than a piece of property, a past mistake or a political tool to be dressed up and taken out as part of a dog-and-pony show to impress the well-meaning.
In the majority opinion for Obergefell v. Hodges, Kennedy wrote:
Excluding same-sex couples from marriage thus conflicts with a central premise of the right to marry. Without the recognition, stability, and predictability marriage offers, their children suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser.
The children of same-sex “parents” suffer the stigma of knowing that they live in homes with two people who are engaging in an unnatural relationship that deprives them of a mother and father. Children are not so stupid as to not recognize that their two mommies or two daddies are not capable of procreating, which means they can easily discern that they are not part of a natural family. LGBTs, progressive politicians and judges use children as political footballs, pieces of property, and trophies to signify that their political ideology is winning, the children mean nothing to them.
LGBTs emboldened by the ruling in favor of same-sex marriages will soon direct their venom towards adoption agencies that do not allow same-sex couples to adopt children. An avalanche of lawsuits are on the horizon unless adoption agencies, public and private, open up adoptions to all variations of parents. Lawsuits claiming discrimination will flow like water unless adoption agencies provide adoptions on demand, no questions asked.
