"Virginia Debates Adoptions by Gay Couples"


This is a deeply misleading headline, since the actual debate is whether the government of Virginia should put adoption agencies that don't place children with unmarried gay couples out of business.

And it produces utterly strange comments in support of the proposed regs like this one:

“There’s currently over 5,500 children in the foster care system in Virginia that are either in homes or need to be placed in homes,” said Adam Sharp, who chairs the Young Democrats’ Family Caucus.

Let's see, 5,500 children need homes, what should we do? I know: let's put a number of good adoption and foster care agencies out of business. That will really help those kids find homes!
