<From a 2005 speech to conservative voters in south Carolina>

Some gays are actually having children born to them...It’s not right on paper. It’s not right in fact. Every child has a right to a mother and father.

if they have children born to them.. don't these children have a mother AND a father by default? As in: we humans don't reproduce asexually?

Ohh.. you mean: a traditional mommy and daddy, who are legitimately married to eachother as in one woman and one man (From a MORMON! THE IRONY!), to form a loving family to raise brats...

If the child is welcome, I don't care how many dads or moms it has, as long as it's taken care of, loved and raised to a good, well thinking human being!

ot: login freaks a bit. Yes I am who I am. Just not the underline.

But children don't pay income tax, so your job is not to worry about them. They should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

"Some gays are actually having children born to them."

That's quite an achievement. You have video evidence of this?

A child has a right to a loving, caring, supportive, safe home. Regardless of how many adults live there, and what their genders are.

P.S. Totally agree with ChrisInManc

So gays reproduce via budding like yeast?

Yes, evil scientists are working in labs to make gay people able to have babies on their own...

I thought Mr. Conservative would be happy about this, seeing as how he's so against abortion in any form. Funny how right-wingers are all in favor of getting babies born except when it comes to being born to gay people. I guess they think that instead of having a child be born to two loving parents of the same gender, they'd rather have children be born to a single mother who doesn't want them and can't provide for them.

*edit* Filin De Blanc wins the internet.

If it was true, any child growing up without a mother or a father would be damaged, THEY'RE NOT.

Jesus Fucking Christ, I shouldn't be able to refute a Presidential Candidate with a single sentence.

Tell that to God! He deprived my dad of a father (died of a stroke) when he was 6 months old.
Tell that also to all guys throughout the ages who have just disappeared when their girlfriends found themselves "in trouble".

Every child has a right to at least one parent who loves it and takes care of it; the genders involved are of lesser importance.
Which is why we are pro-choice, to make sure that no child is born without being loved, wanted and expected.

Two loving moms are better than an uninterested mother and an abusive father.

It is wrong for homosexuals to reproduce because homosexuality is immoral.

And homosexuality is immoral because homosexuals can't reproduce.

I can't believe this man has made it so far in politics.

10/29/2012 6:18:09 AM


So if a child's father dies is that considered a violation of the child's rights? Listen, if a kid is getting the care and resources s/he needs to survive and succeed (as best as the parents can provide anyway) I don't care if the child is being raised by wolves. If the priority is the health and happiness of the child (and not some outdated mythology) then we should strive to give as many kids a happy home as possible and not nitpick the fact that some parents have the same sex.

Abysmal ignorance, thy name is Fundie.

At least he is refuting the old homophobic "gays cant have babies" excuse.

10/29/2012 6:23:19 AM


Every child has a right to a loving parent or guardian who loves them and raises them well, Mr. Mittens McFlipflop!

10/29/2012 7:39:02 AM


Yay! No more killing young fathers and mothers in senseless wars!

Oh, that's not what you meant?

"Some gays are actually having children born to them...It’s not right on paper."

The 10th Amendment states that - less there's a law which makes a specific activity illegal -you can do whatever the fuck you like. I bet Elton John and David Furnish aren't the only gay couple who have done so. Last time I heard, there wasn't a law which made the adoption at least of children by same-sex couples illegal. Try again, Mittens.

"It’s not right in fact"

Prove it. According to the law - on paper (including the US Constitution, no less) - it's extremely right. You FAIL. Next question.

"Every child has a right to a mother and father"

Or even a father, and a mother, and a mother, and a mother, and a mother, and a mother, and a mother...!

You are a Mor(m)on, Mitt the Tit. Also (emphasising his own words on DADT)...:

...you are in no position to so much as think you have the right to dictate morals to others.

Oh, and even before your gaffes; especially outside the US ('Britain isn't ready' - at our 2012 Olympics) of late; seems that you'd gotten the whole 'Foot in Mouth Syndrome' thing down pat then. Great job in helping the LGBT people in the US decide who to vote for, Mitt the Mor(m)on. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, indeed.

"Every child has a right to a mother and father."

Should we then force any widow or widower to re-marry?
What about single fathers or mothers?

Coming from the guys that consistently decry human rights activism, this is a bit rich.

Um Mitt, just exactly which day in biology class did you miss?

Fundies Make Me Sick

Gays can have biological children, just not through intercourse. I have no problem with gays having kids. However, I do have a problem with you suggesting that they shouldn't be allowed to have kids, Mr. Romney.

10/29/2012 8:43:19 AM


Some children are born to conservetards. It's just not right. Every child has a right to a mother and father with at least HALF a brain.

10/29/2012 9:46:25 AM


Homophobia meets sexism. A child's parents do not have to be of the opposite sex for the child to grow up well. The notion that men and women have biologically determined roles is antiquated.
