Arkansas (The State That Just Made It Illegal For Gays To Adopt) Seizes 21 Children From A Christian Ministry
I love irony. I simply can’t get enough of it. If I could I’d eat it for breakfast instead of Fruit Loops (cause after all, isn’t that what all gay men eat?) I would eat it by the bowl full. So when the news came to me (via the Web) by way of a USA Today headline I read with pity for the kids but licked my lips at the irony of the situation. That’s right kids, Arkansas (the state that just made it illegal for gays to adopt) seizes 21 children from a Christian Ministry – Don’t Get Me Started!
Before the Christians get all crazy on me, saying that the minister who was taken into custody is not one of “their” Christians I will tell you, this pedophile’s Christianity is the church he named after himself, The Tony Alamo Christian Ministries. Isn’t there something about “remembering the Alamo” that also feels a little ironic here too? If you’d like to read the actual article, here you go… http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2008-11-18-arkansas_N.htm?csp=34 but for those who come to my site to read me rant, here we go.
I’m tired. So very tired of hearing how a child can only be raised by one mother and one father. Explain to me all the single parent homes across the country producing well adjusted, healthy adults. For that matter, explain to me all the well adjusted kids who are being raised in gay parent homes. For most, they will say that the whole two parent (woman and man) concept is the way that it should be because that’s the way it has always been. But if that theory ruled our lives and worked, we’d still be rubbing sticks together to make fire, only watching the three major networks and making our younger brother hold the TV antenna in just the right position so that the picture wasn’t fuzzy. In other words, we hopefully have progressed as a civilization just as technology has assisted us. So why (pray tell) when it comes to human relationships are we still seemingly in a period where a man should want to marry a woman because her father will also give him two goats and a milk cow? You laugh but for some, am I really all that far off?
What gets me is that once again it seems to be okay to completely destroy children, breeding them in these religious compounds like puppies in a puppy farm to be abused by the supposed “elders” but don’t let the gays raise them, they just might actually love them and teach them how to have self esteem when all the laws and people around them conspire to spew their hate and hateful way of thinking about them on you because you’re committed to someone of the same sex. I’m sick of watching the whole “To Catch A Predator” show. If Chris Hansen really wants to do something, he’ll get out of the kitchens across the country and head for the compounds. Oh right, the compounds are protected because they’re a “religious” organization. They also don’t pay taxes. So let’s see, they get to destroy children, not pay taxes and then they can spend their extra cash to convince the people who live in their state to not let gays adopt. Hey, that sounds fair. (If you can’t read my sarcasm allow me to let you know – I’M BEING SARCASTIC).
Hey, here’s an idea. How about we help out our faltering economy by taxing churches, synagogues, and any and all religious organizations? Why should they be exempt? Isn’t there supposed to be a separation of church and state anyway? Wouldn’t it have been better if the $300 Million that the Mormons spent on getting Proposition 8 in California passed went to the people in this country who need help? I’m done with religious organizations being exempt from the laws that govern the rest of us. What makes them so special? We all see that they can’t handle this power. Let them be filled with “divine inspiration” but think of how much money we could make if they paid taxes, wouldn’t that be divine?
Look, I know that there are a lot of people who will never accept me for being Jewish, gay, brown haired or just so freaking cute but if we allowed ignorance to rule the world then Sherri Shepherd would have fallen off the flat earth long ago. Come on people, let’s get out of the dark ages (where we thought blacks could only adopt black children and white parents could only adopt white children) and realize that if there’s a loving home available for a child then our government should be doing everything they can to help that child get into that home and stop looking to see if there are too many vaginas in the house. Until then I guess we’ll all just have to sit and watch the endless parade of irony (I’d like mine with a side of indignation please) Arkansas (the state that just made it illegal for gays to adopt) seizes 21 children from a Christian Ministry – Don’t Get Me Started!

Here I thought that there would be certain phrases that we would never have to hear again. You know, like "Cowabunga" from when the Simpsons first came out or "What's uaaaaaaaaaaap?" from that...
