Rep. Paul Ryan now supports gay adoption

I’m curious as to how gay marriage is worse than gay adoption for Ryan.


#2

He’d rather they were unmarried an ineligible for benefits. Nothing like an unmarried home to set a good example for the kids!

Marriage is a religious institution, allowing the government to seize it by force for no other reason than to help perverts spit on people they hate by reversing its thousands of years old definition is a private property and limited government issue.

Gay adoption while deplorable does not violate private property rights as the concept of government setting standards for adoption was embraced by the electorate long ago.

I don’t know if these are his reasons but they are not inconsistent unless one buys the lie that the opposition to queer marriage is only by “religious homophobes” and queers just want to “express their love”, neither of these premises is true.

Yeah, because a gay example is so much better than an unmarried home.[/Sarcasm]

So long as it’s not an abusive household, and the adopter has the means, I don’t care if it’s a single person, gay person, married couple or whatever. It needs to be productive for the kid. Orphans and foster kids need stability, just as any kid does. I think that’s best judged on an individual basis, not a blanket policy.

Paul Ryan is a spineless tool. He’s not a conservative, not fiscally or socially.

Paul Ryan on Education
Rep. Ryan went along with the Bush Administration in supporting more federal involvement in education. This is contrary to the traditional Republican position, which included support for abolition of the Department of Education and decreasing federal involvement in education.

Now he supports letting perverts adopt children. Great.
