I will now make it my business for the rest of my life to oppose any of these "faith based" adoption agencies from receiving a dime of my tax money, and whatever dimes they do end up receiving that they pay hell for it in as many ways as possible.

The religious right is digging themselves into a hole they soon won't be able to climb out of, within this very generation, as they keep trying to bully others with their faith primarily by getting in bed with politicians.

Mixing politics and religion corrupts both.

I predict within another 10-15 years they will be wringing their hands wondering how society has become so secular and why their superstitions have become so irrellevant.

That day cannot come soon enough for me.

The "victory" for religious liberty has come at the total defeat of the best interests of the children who need homes. Congratulations to all you zealots!

This just in: TN legislators, not to be outdone, are working on a "don't say 'adoption'" bill. More later.

Well, you still won't get adopted despite your apparent qualification on that score. No educated persons would put up with you.

Hey deranged, sexually sick moron, you haven't checked the national polls recently. Only the knuckle dragging talibangelicals in red states are worked up about this.

And finding homes for foster or adoptive kids is hardly wasteful.

As for your "special interest" hysteria, perhaps it is you Christsharians who will find yourselves dismissed as the "special interest" that people are tired of. After all, you treat others as you would be treated.

Um torch, you might want to attempt a slight grasp of the proper usage of grammar and syntax before you try to slam another for their lack of intelligence.

Hey sick freeek, AIDS worldwide is overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals and has been for decades.

Polling shows your sexual disorder of extreme homophobia is going as we speak the way of the dinos.

Finding homes for kids is not a "special right."

If you don't think any of this is important then you shouldn't be spreading your sexually disordered nonsense in this thread, because this is what the thread is about.

Torch,

You are not only a sexually repressed closet case but your grasp of the English language, and the basic fundamentals of grammar and punctuation, is laughable.

What are you? A home schooled twat whose only friend is the dog any time it doesn't have a chance to turn and run far away. We get you. The only way you know how to combat your queerness is to verbalize your homophobia as often as possible. Its the only thing uneducated simpletons know how to di.

But... It doesn't work, does it? You're just as gay as you have ever been.

You know long hot baths and razor blades might help.
