And the Conservative Push Begins...

...against adoption by gay parents. At the forefront of the debate emerges one Debra Maggart, Republican Rep in Sumner County, TN. According to Maggart, most gays and lesbians are unfit to parent because they have "emotional dysfunctions and psychological issues." Yeah, Hellena doesn't know any heterosexual women or men who are dysfunctional. There's no soccer moms doped up on mood inhibitors in this God-fearing country.

Is anyone else thinking of SNL's Church Lady here?

Turns out Ms. Maggart is divorced, which makes her oh-so-stable and qualified to be a single parent, yet she believes children need "the optimum family unit, and that is a mother and a father." Apparently, Maggart hasn't checked the divorce rate of heterosexual couples lately.

An excellent write-up from Guerilla Women TN here.

Isn't that special?
