Hetero Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father…

They weren’t a mother and a father, just a mother and her male “companion,” but the religious right can nevertheless take comfort: this little boy has male and female role models, just as God intended…
Investigators found a crying 6-year-old boy tied up in a sweltering car at a suburban restaurant after employees reported seeing a man take the child outside and return without him to finish eating.
Police believe the boy, whose name was not released, was tied up for about 30 minutes while the outside temperature was in the 80s Saturday in Ringgold, Ga., about 13 miles southeast of Chattanooga, Sgt. John Gass said Tuesday.
“He was sitting up in between the two front seats and he was crying,” Gass said. “He had a rope tied to one of his ankles. The child was just sweating, just soaking.”
The boy’s mother, Rachel Gilchrist, 35, and her companion, Raymond Minchew, 61, both of Sandy Springs, Ga., were arrested Saturday and charged with cruelty to children.
Dozens of children die every year after being left—usually by accident—in hot cars. Temperatures in a locked car in the sun can reach fatal levels in as little as 15 minutes.
