SB 959 Way Overdue (Protects Foster Children from Homosexuals)

Kudos to Senator Shawn Womack for writing a strong un-PC bill to protect children. SB 959 would ban homosexuals from becoming foster parents or adopting children. I happen to know a lot of the background on this issue. The story is not what the ACLU or certain print media would have you believe.

Social workers in the state department of human services originally banned homosexuals from getting ahold of children. They may be too afraid of PC to say so now, but they did. Why? I'll be blunt. Because they care about the kids. Because they work with these troubled children every day and they know what is harmful. They did not want the kids getting screwed up by degenerates, especially on the taxpayers dime and under their "supervison", as is the case with foster parenting. I'll not mince words here, not when the lives of young children hang in the balance. Some people are just going to have to learn to live with the consequences of their choices. The DHS workers felt that pursuit of this particular life style should disqualify one from control over a vurnerable child.

Well the courts, contrary to what the Rob Moritz article might lead you to believe, did NOT rule that this was going too far. It only ruled that the board at DHS, own its own, did not have the authority to make a rule like that. This put the ball squarely in the legislature's court, which they immediately fumbled- if you will excuse my mixed-sports metaphors. Womack has jumped on the loose football, and is now attempting to rally the good guys for a score. Let's hope he gets it.

Someone also needs to protect the taxpayers from House Bill 3229. It allows the Soil and Water Commission to issue $300 million in General Obligation Bonds for irrigation projects. If the taxpayers are going to get stuck with $300 million in debt to pay off, at least they could spend it on highways or something of use to more than a few hundred rice farmers. I heard that it will be voted on tomorrow (Thur).

Arrgh! Good Catch. It deserves its own post. I wish I had more time and details.

This bill is so hateful. It will also ban BLOOD RELATIVES OF THE CHILD from adopting or being a foster parent. Why break up families? There are over 100 children in AR waiting to be adopted--many are special needs. I am embarressed.

Just so long as you are not "embarrassed". There is more to being a father than being a sperm donor, and there is more to being being a parent than sharing some DNA. We ban people from adopting for all sorts of moral degeneracy like drug addiction. Our priority is protecting children, not validating your lifestyle. Go back to Oceanside and get some real arguments.
