That's right, dirt-bag, call Judge Roberts' family "second rate". That will bolster your case when it comes before him. Just how stupid are these people?

Unless of course he is laying the foundation for claiming that Roberts was prejudiced (if he approves gay marriage) because of his attack. Of course, and most likely, he is just a shmuck.

Without a doubt they are incredibly stupid, but I think that even more importantly, they are becoming increasingly desperate and are now teetering on the brink of insanity.

Science, logic, and popular opinion have all turned against them; now they are throwing darts willy-nilly, hoping that one of them will hit a target.

The preponderance of the evidence shows the relationship between the parents and child is the determining factor for success, not the gender of the parents, nor their biological connection.

Adoption is not the same as a step child relationship:

"Although remarriage of a father or mother can have bad consequences for children, when a couple adopts a baby unrelated to either of them its prospects are much brighter... parents treat their adopted children just as well as biological children."

"Two recent studies help to clarify the issue of how well adoptive children are treated. The first, published in 2007, found that children in adoptive households are treated better than children in homes with two genetic parents."

Whatever the reasons for the Cinderella effect, it is now quite clear that it is not triggered by a lack of genetic relationship. After all, adoptive parents take better care of children than birth parents do. It seems that caring for children, related or not, involves a deep human need that is better satisfied by adoption than step-parenting."

Equal legal recognition for same sex parent families will not affect the rights or relationships of opposite sex parent families.

Good grief, what a stretch this article is. Attacking? Give me a break. This is the kind of hyperbole you get when article is written by a blogger with an agenda rather than an objective reporter.
