Democrat Pete Stark, who told a town hall questioner “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg, it wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine” has proposed a new bill to punish Red States for daring to prohibit adoptions by gays.
Not surprisingly, Stark’s bill, “Every Child Deserves a Family Act” is built on a lie.
The bill would withhold federal welfare funding from any state the Gay lobby doesn’t like.
Its immediate targets are Utah, Nebraska Florida, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
Where did Stark’s data come from?
Stark’s bill says, “A report from the Evan B. Donaldson Institute found that an additional 2,000,000 gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals are interested in adoption.”
The Evan B. Donaldson Institute’s Director of External Relations is Laura James.
Her biography brags she’s “Development Director for GLSEN, the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network, a national organization working to create safe schools for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, staff, and families..”
As the “Director of External Relations” it’s quite probable Ms. James had a lot to do with the preparation of the Institute’s report which was dutifully parroted in Stark’s bill.
Simple math proves the lie
The 2000 Census counted 281.4 million Americans and 1.4 million domestically adopted children meaning just .05% of Americans adopted a child.
The commonly accepted percentage of homosexuals in America is 1 to 3%. Even using 3% means there are nine million homosexuals in our country. Simple “off the top of your head” calculation tells us saying 2 million “gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals are interested in adoption” is a lie. That would mean fully 22% of Gays are interested in adopting children.
Using Stark’s lie means homosexuals want to adopt at a rate roughly 2200% HIGHER than the general population.
Simple calculation tells us the truth.
Stealing our liberty
All this outrage needs is a little light. Shinning the light of truth on this bill will make this pile manure dry up and fade away so we have to keep an eye on it.
It will do nothing to appreciably increase gay adoptions, but it opens the door to more control of our lives by nameless faceless Washington bureaucrats.
Gays are generally a totally self centered group interested in a hedonistic lifestyle that rarely includes raising children or anything resembling a traditional family. Of course there are exceptions, but in numbers like this? Hardly.
This is just one more trick to subjugate America and drown us in socialism. So far this bill has been too much for the Democrats to handle, but make no mistake as soon as they think they can get this by us they will try.
Lies like this are common when the Left wants to fool people. They never trust their own ideas to support themselves.
