DOJ: Children Do Not Needand Have No Right to--Mothers March 3, 2013 By Terence P. Jeffrey
Georgetown Law School. (AP Photo/Haraz Ghanbari) (CNSNews.com) - The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.
The Justice Departments argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended Californias Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.
The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.
The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each.
The [California] Voter Guide arguably offered a distinct but related child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: 'the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father, said the administrations brief submitted to the court by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr.
As an initial matter, no sound basis exists for concluding that same-sex couples who have committed to marriage are anything other than fully capable of responsible parenting and child-rearing, the Department of Justice told the court. To the contrary, many leading medical, psychological, and social-welfare organizations have issued policy statements opposing restrictions on gay and lesbian parenting based on their conclusion, supported by numerous scientific studies, that...

Indeed. Thank you for sharing your insights, dear brother in Christ!
It’s pretty simple - The first two on earth were a man and a woman. Whether you believe it’s God or another force, it’s still a man and a woman who were given the gift of procreation.
Not a man and a man or a woman and a woman.
End of story.
May the breath of God, be upon all children
Except when men start calling themselves mothers and woman start calling themselves fathers.. they in their minds can fulfill those roles.
They didn’t see what I saw. My then 88 year old mother consoling my then 70 year old brother after the loss of his wife of 50 years.
Well, I guess I was referring to myself then....lol.
Over the past five years, my nerves have been frayed, my temper has flared and my patience has flown. Now all that remains is my dumbfounded disbelief that we are collectively sitting around watching our freedoms lost, our lives ruined and our utter destruction occur DAILY...
and doing NOTHING about it.
It (only) takes a village...
Well Xena, we may not be blowing the bugles to assemble the citizen militia just yet, but I've got a strong feeling that most good Americans aren't just sitting idle, watching the country be murdered. They're out there preparing like crazy for what might come, if these Commies push it that far.
Why do you think the regime is spending so much money on firearms, ammunition, and tanks (of all things)? It's a reaction to the proactive actions of tens of millions of alert Americans.
It's all for naught, though, as their war game simulations have always shown. The armed American public constitutes the largest fighting force on the face of the planet. It cannot be beaten through military means. Only a suicidal ignoramus would even try it. It would be the end of them, their cronies, their supporters, their political party, and everything connected with them.
Those are the facts. I hope it eases your mind a bit.
not fired, lynched
Fired does not eliminate the problem mind
