i guess it’s no surprise out of arkansas

I was all set to write about the Minnesota Timberwolves player who was jerking off to porn while drunk and driving his car, because let’s face it – nobody was hurt when he crashed into a park car, so it’s kind of entertaining. But then I read about Arkansas’ Governor joining the troops of douchebags.

“I’m very disappointed that the court seems more interested in what’s good for gay couples than what’s good for children needing foster care,” Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said through his spokeswoman Alice Stewart. [link]

So, we don’t let The Gays become legally married. It’ll ruin the sanctity of marriage. Right.

But where’s the justifcation on why gay and lesbian couples shouldn’t be able to adopt children or serve as foster parents? Gay couples aren’t volunteering their lives to become foster parents because it benefits them. They’re volunteering because there are over half a million kids in foster care right now and the number isn’t getting any smaller.

I always forget that one person, like the Governor of Arkansas, can control the future of so many children needing homes by refusing to let a devoted and caring couple, regardless of sexual orientation, provide a place these kids can call home.
