Are Some Social Workers A Little Too Anxious to Affirm Novel Family Forms?


A judge in Australia thinks maybe so:

A six-year-old boy in Australia was removed from his lesbian foster parents after they posted a photo of him dressed as a girl onto Facebook, a Supreme Court judgment revealed last month.

One of the women is reportedly seeking to undergo a ‘sex change’, while the other is hoping to bear a child through artificial reproduction.

... The boy’s mother had been trying to regain custody, but the country’s Supreme Court rejected her plea.  Dubbed ‘Campbell’ by the New South Wales Children’s Court, the boy was removed from his parents along with four stepbrothers and two stepsisters in 2006 because of complaints about physical and mental abuse.

He and his 12-year-old sister were placed with the lesbian couple in 2009, and he has now been placed with new foster parents who have said they hope to adopt him. -- LifeSiteNews

    I can believe that some social workers are desperate to affirm novel family forms. I KNOW that the ones in the U.S. are not interested in promoting the traditional, i.e. most successful, family form, all while claiming they are for ending poverty and promoting the well-being of children. But I digress :) .....

    A nation that chooses to normalize pathologies is a nation that chooses to fail.

    As Mike Huckabee famously said: "Children are not pets." Apparently these two lesbian nutcases didn't get the memo.

    Praise God for this judge in Australia that has common sense! Unfortunately, the same can't be said for many here in America.

    Praying these children were removed from that environment before they suffered any permanent psychological damage.

    If the kid wanted to do it, what's the harm exactly? Hell, if I had a son who wanted to dress up as a princess for Halloween, I'd buy the costume for him myself
