Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

Posted by on Mon, Jun 2, 2014 at 10:06 AM

New Civil Rights Movement:

Neglectful and abusive Catholic parents who reportedly beat their two toddlers and left them dirty and unkempt are furious that a same-sex couple has adopted the children after a court ordered them removed from their parents. The parents, in England, are crying “social engineering” and are angry their children, aged two and four, will not benefit from their Slovakian and Catholic culture.

Who will teach these kids that toddlers are there to be beaten? But their abusive, neglectful bio mom and dad aren't just worried about the kids. They're also worried about their potential adoptive parents:

“If as expected our children will try to find us and their siblings and roots, then they will discover huge differences between our culture and the way they’ve been brought up. This is likely to cause them great upset and to suffer a conflict within themselves such as to set them against their adoptive parents.”

So one day these two poor kids are going seek out their biological parents and they'll be so furious when they realize that they lost out on years of beatings and neglect that they'll turn against their adoptive parents? The judge didn't buy it, told the abusers to go fuck themselves (but in polite legalese!), and approved the adoption. The abusers plan to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights.

Meanwhile in N Ireland the Catholics and Protestants finally have a shared goal in vile homophobia. Seriously, fuck religion.

Going on paid speaking tours, and answering teenage questions about sex is extremely helpful toward these matters. Thank you Dan for your fight against child abuse!

@3:

So, you'd prefer that Dan be unemployed and unable to provide financial security for his family?

You DO know there's no award for "Stupidest Internet Comment of The Day", right?

I'm confused. Are you insinuating that ALL Catholics beat their children?

@6: I'm not seeing anything that implies all Catholics do anything. The birth parents are Slovak and Catholic, and they claim both cultures disagree with gay parenting. The child beating is what got their kids taken away, and is unrelated to the complaints about who got their kids. I'm just seeing whiny birth parents with entitlement issues.

This may have been asked already (and answered) but ... do you have a running score on the vast number of these posts? Just listing them day in, day out makes a dent, yes, but I think if there were some way of keeping a tally of the number of irresponsible, criminal, thug parents who appear in these columns it might make this whole horrid mess more media friendly. As in: Dan Savage's body count has risen to 13 more straight parents in a single week....
