Good news out of Texas for those of us who like our religious dogma narrow-minded, spiteful, and thrust into the face of others: homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals will no longer be able to become foster parents.
If the bill gains approval from the Texas senate, the state will be allowed to investigate the backgrounds of current foster parents and remove children living in non-heterosexual households. All future foster parents will be required to disclose their sexual preference on an application form, a legislative aide said.
Though it is not mentioned in the article, a further examination of the bill reveals that the children who do not find foster parents as a result of the now shrunken pool of qualifiable applicants will be raised in the forests of Northwest Montana by a pack of wolves and a sociology Ph.D. candidate from Yale.
Some have protested this move as unseemly, unwise, and unfounded. Regrettably, these same people have not, I'd venture to guess, visited the forests of Northwest Montana, nor have they had their lives ruined by being raised by genuinely caring people who would rather stick their penis in another guy's starfish or stick their ladyfingers in ladyholes than love Jesus Christ and families and America.
