It’s an easy enough question. Say you only have one sibling and he is gay. He’s been with his partner for fifteen years. Your kids love them both, adore them. They are your only family in the world.
If you and your spouse die, would your kids be better off being adopted by them or placed up for adoption by strangers?
If McWherter had his way, your wishes wouldn’t matter. He’s opposed to letting gay people adopt.
Do you support a proposed ban on unmarried (including gay) couples adopting children?
McWherter does support the ban, and feels that having parents of the opposite sex is better for a child. He says that the Department of Children’s Services reports to the governor, so as governor, he would be responsible for children in need of this service. I followed up by asking if he felt that foster care by an opposite-sex couple was better than adoption by a same-sex couple, and he said that he did.
Yep. McWherter knows what’s better for your kids than you do. And he’s willing to tear your children away from the only family they know in order to impose his political agenda on the state.
It’s bad enough to see a Democrat being such a balls out bigot towards gay people, but damn, that he’s willing to hurt children in order to advance his anti-gay bigotry?
What can you even say in the face of that?
