July 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) Elton John said in an interview this week that it will be heartbreaking for his son to grow up without a mom.
Elton and his homosexual partner David Furnish got married in 2005, and, after trying unsuccessfully to adopt a child in Ukraine, arranged for a boy child, Zachary, to be born to a surrogate mother in 2010.
John admitted to Matt Lauer on NBC Today, Its going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasnt got a mummy.
John said he is also worried about when Zachary goes to preschool and other children ask him why he doesnt have a mom. He said that he and Furnish would like to have another child so Zachary doesnt have go through it alone.
Gwen Landolt of REAL Women of Canada told LifeSiteNews: If hes concerned about it then why on earth is he adopting the child knowing the child is going to have a difficult life with much more complications than a child with heterosexual parents?
Interestingly when similar observations to Johns are made by non-homosexuals they are often met by overt hostility.
Earlier this year a 14-year-old girl received death threats after she told Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think its fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on. She spoke to the Committee asking them to vote no to a gay marriage proposal.
Several studies on homosexual parenting have concluded that there are no ill effects to a child with homosexual parents. However, according to a report published in 2005 by HazteOir, Spanish Forum for the Family, and the Institute for Family Policy, most of these studies have been done by homosexual activists, using small selective populations and reports from parents instead of children.
The report, entitled Report on Infantile Development in Same-Sex Couples, contradicts the other studies. It says that among children raised by same-sex couples there are significant increases in low self-esteem, stress, sexual identity confusion, an increase in mental illness, drug use, promiscuity, STDs, and homosexual behaviour.
A new study on homosexual parenting, by University of Texas professor Mark Regnerus, was published this month in Social Science Research. It has been hailed as a gold standard study because of its use of a large, random sample with responses from children instead of parents. Areas Regnerus examined include rates of employment, voting, suicide, fidelity in relationships, and sexual abuse. The studys findings show that children with heterosexual parents fare better, in a number of areas than those with homosexual parents.
For the findings of his research Regenerus has been subject to complaints by homosexual activists and is now under investigation by the University of Texas.
Landolt says parenting by homosexual couples is looking to the so-called rights of the adult not the best interests of the child. A child needs a mother and a father and thats the only way they can learn about the gender differences in which the whole world functions.
Children are not pets.
Let's compound the problem by introducing another, "motherless" child to commiserate with the first one. This is total selfishness!
Words fail me.
Imagine what he'll think about some of the other activities going on around there, Frootloop.
Every once in awhile he has a moment of clarity, he knows deep down his lifestyle is wrong.
It is not just selfish; it is EVIL. The fact that almost half the country wants to see gay marriage and gay parenting like this—and hate a business like Chick-fil-A for disapproving of it—is proof to me that we have reached a point of no return.
John’s got enough money to have a pair of breasts grafted onto his back. He could be both Sir and Lady Elton.
It’s heartbreaking that two Godless deviants are perverting a human being in full sight of us all. Says a lot about EVERYONE.
This explains why he was at Rush's wedding. I think Rush is working on him. Don't be surprised if sometime in the near future Elton runs away from this sinful lifestyle and finds himself a good woman to be the child's mother.
So, little Zackery does have a "mum".
Drop the queer butt buddy and marry the lady, IF you REALLY care for your little Zackery.
I have no idea what this statement means. I am very much against homosexual adoption, marriage, and anything else that attempts to normalize and/or spread the behavior, and I vote accordingly whenever I have the chance.
Are you suggesting that we band together and steal the kid away from Elton John...or...what?
Elton John has always struck me as a basically decent guy whose perversion gets the better of him.
What I wish he would do is make the real mother a part of this kid’s life, if she was willing.
It’s not remotely the perfect solution, but it’s all there is.
Are you a male or female. Just curious
Yep, I called it before reading to this sentence. Of course, it's because UT Austin is the most liberal treehugging nekkid hippy greenie blight on the Lone Star State. They'll investigate this professor but don't bat an eye when another of their profs teaches his students that he's for letting ebola loose to kill off 90% of the earth's human population.
And whose fault is that, Sir Elton?
He tried, that was what the song “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” was about, he was about to marry a woman, even though he knew it wouldn’t work, and was talked out of it. He actually did marry in the 80s. I think he did make a sincere effort, but it just didn’t work out. He also was addicted to alcohol and drugs for most of that time, which didn’t help matters.
I need to eat more just to keep up with the puking.
Its going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasnt got a mummy.
Uhh, don’t look now, but he really won’t have much of a father figure in his life either.
More like being raised by the carnival freak show and the bearded lady.
Elton John and his boyfriend David Furniss planned, intended, arranged,and paid for this child to be separated from his mother and to be raised motherless. And they feel so bad about this "heartbreaking" situation that they're going to do it again.
A couple more words to be included in the general purview: sadness, selfishness, sorrow. Also disorder, deviancy, degeneracy, disgust.
Homosexuals treating children like pets is selfish and mentally deranged. They shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near children.
Earth calling the selfish homosexual jerk named Elton John - that’s what happens when homos choose an abhorrent lifestyle to legally (though immorally) raise a child...
> Elton John says its heartbreaking that son will grow up
> without a mom
Didn’t he sing a song titled “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”? Well he’s done it to himself now.
Actions have consequences.
“Bernie Taupin’s lyric refers to a time in 1969, before John was a popular musician, when John was engaged to be married to his girlfriend, Linda Woodrow.
John and Woodrow were sharing a flat with Taupin in Furlong Road in the East End of London, hence the opening line “When I think of those East End lights.”
While having serious doubts about the looming marriage, John contemplated suicide. He took refuge in his friends, especially Long John Baldry, who convinced John to abandon his plans to marry in order to salvage and maintain his musical career.
As a sign of his respect and gratitude for Baldry, Taupin wrote him into the song as the “someone” in the title, and also as “Sugar Bear”.
Some radio stations banned or altered the song, due to the use of the words “damn it” in the second verse.”
Is that what they call “conflicted”?
I'll bet that we have another "Chaz" in the making.But then who would expect anything else to come from that utterly worthless "father"?
Poor Elton, it’s all so confusing, isn’t it?
How creative for somebody to have thought about such a website.
Heartbreaking that he won’t have a father either
Let’s compound the problem by introducing another, “motherless” child to commiserate with the first one. This is total selfishness!
That is the whole world of gays. All about ME
Maybe Elton had a mommy?
And so - having children often causes us to reflect upon our own childhoods.
I keep this in mind when I hear homosexuals argue gay marriage is “just as” beneficial - “just as” normative as heterosexual marriage.
Some I know personally come from homes where they, themselves, were raised by a loving mom and dad.
I don’t think they truly believe,deep down, they are providing “just as” good an environment as they received.
Points for seeing the obvious
I know, what a narcissistic old queen. Pray for the poor child.
I'm glad I didn't figure this out till much later - as a 15 year old I played the crap out of that album.
I pray that this is the Holy Spirit at work in Elton's life.
He’s “got a mummy.”
Sadly she donated him to two faggots to raise.
1. Sure it’s bad for the kid but heartbreaking? Kids dying of starvation, being tied up and beaten, getting childhood cancer is heartbreaking. This is more just bizarre. The kid may end up all screwed up - or not. Who’s really to say.
2. The old queen should just shut up about the whole thing. He obviously has enough money and influence to do whatever he did with the surrogate and all that crap. If you’re going to do it - then live with the consequences. Don’t whine about it.
3. Dollars to donuts (does this even make sense any more - don’t donuts cost more than a dollar now?) the kid will be brought up by one or more nannies while John and his boy toy trot around the globe doing whatever it is they do. Which is probably not unique to gay parents - probably happens a lot with a lot of families in that socioeconomic strata. With luck the nannies will be decent people, almost certainly female, and the kid will have at least some stable influences in its life.
Well, Lady Elton...
Totally agree! Thanks for the post and ping.
Sorry, I can’t agree with you that he’s basically decent. Not so long ago he said that Jesus was a homosexual. That kind of blasphemy can’t exist alongside decency.
LOL!!!!!! In a sick thread, I got a laugh!! THANKS!
Exactly. Thank you.
It means that the greatest Culture the world has ever seen is DEAD and that the prime beneficiaries of that culture don't care. It means that we are descending into Chaos and that we as a nation have turned our back upon God (and, perhaps, He upon us). Decent people would once have banded together and rescued that kid and if necessary strung up the wackos. We don't even think they ARE wackos.
“I weep for you,” the Walrus said:
“I deeply sympathize.”
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.
“O Oysters,” said the Carpenter,
“You’ve had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?’
But answer came there none—
And this was scarcely odd, because
They’d eaten every one.
Thanks Elton.....now we know you care : )
So you advocate kidnapping and murder to resolve the situation. Who, again, are the "decent people" you're referring to?
“Children are not pets.”
Or worse, fashion accessories.
