[Parental Advisory: I will be cursing profusely in this post]

You know, I was having a perfectly normal day. I decided not to post much…make it a light day. Get some chores caught up on. Nice dinner with my family. Have a few drinks with like-minded friends. Then this happened: BSB – The Most Pressing Issue In Ohio:

To amend sections 3107.03 and 5103.03 of the Revised Code to prohibit an adoptive or foster child from being placed in the private residence of a homosexual, bisexual, or transgender person.

Damnit. Not gonna let this one slide. These sorry motherfuckers. Here is what I call on right now. I call on every right-wing Christian theocrat to adopt 2 children immediately. The sponsors of this bill should adopt 5 or take their fucking name off of this bill. Yes, you Hood, Brinkman, Reidelbach, Willamowski, Seaver, Hoops, Bubp, Gilb, Buehrer, and Schaffer. Adopt or drop (your sponsorship)!

I am so sick and fucking tired of this worn out shit I could scream. Gays and bisexuals are not fucking predators assholes. They are people…and if they care enough to try to adopt needy children, they don’t need your holier than thou fucking ass telling them they can’t – provided they are productive law-abiding citizens of course. I support non-discriminatory type checks for the safety and well-being of the child. But this bullshit is unacceptable theocratic partisan bullshit. Get your religion and your agenda out of the way of needy Ohio children.

And while you are at it, do a bit of research on the problem…er, um non-problem. This is all yet another Republican solution to a problem that simply does not exist:

Reflecting the results of these and other studies, the mainstream view among researchers and professionals who work in the area of child sexual abuse is that homosexual and bisexual men do not pose any special threat to children. – Source

view the bill if you’d like

We need to be watching this closely and I hope there are groups working against this. Let me know what you find and I’ll link, etc. I will most likely do an LOE and will for sure keep my eye on this.

Fucking bastards. I join BSB in my embarassment in having to call myself an Ohioan. The shit has to change and 2006 is a good place to start. He wonders if Strickland or Fingerhut will step up…I’m thinking we need to page Mr. Hackett. He’s about the only one who will stand up and speak out against this ridiculous shit. Mr. Hackett, line one please. Mr. Hackett, line one.

…is it Drinking Liberally time yet?

  • Hey Eric –
    just sent out 10 seperate emails (one to each of the sponsors).

    Basically as you say, “put up or shut up”.
    I think I put something in there about this not being the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan too.

    I’d urge all my fellow Plunderbund readers to do the same.

    Please enjoy your evening.

    Kudos Scott. You are a doer, my man.

    This is so insulting it is beyond words. I think the best thing we can do is all contact these bill sponsors and also contact the media and demand that they all step up and start adopting. Five sounds like a good number. I understand there are 20,000 kids in the system right now. Doesn’t Rod Parsley’s World Harvest Church claim to have 10,000 members? If each of them adopted one, that would make quite a dent in the number of kids needing homes. of course, these won’t all be healthy white infants but hey…..

    This kind of B.S. really helps to damage the state economically by adding to the reasons why the brightest and most productive people are leaving. Just over this weekend, I have talked to or learned of over a dozen people who are leaving the state. I’ve probably talked to another dozen who are thinking about it and who mention things like this among their reasons. These are mostly creative, educated, younger people (although some are valuable, professional, highly educated older people as well). Is the goal of these neanderthals to drive out everyone who isn’t a backwards fundamentalist dupe so they can have unquestioning control of the state? But once they have driven out the entire economic base, what is it they are controlling anyway?

    I encourage all to check out the above wingnut argument on this issue – it’s priceless. Pay special attention to the keyboard/mouse analogy!

    Are any of the co-sponsors up for re-election this year? We need to try and send them a message if they are!

    Mr. Vessels – Just this week I heared about the HB 515. As I was researching this I came across your site. I must make a few comments. First – you could probably express yourself in a manner other than cursing and get your point across just the same, blah, blah, blah. Second, I’m a Christian woman that has three foster boys. I plan to adopt all three and take on more. I Mr. Vessels am stepping up to the plate and doing what I can to help our future generation. This bill is not to take away potential familes from our needy Ohio children, or to convince everyone that gay men and women are predators. This bill protects the unity of the traditional biblical family, a women and a man. I don’t believe the idea of this bill is to BASH anyone, it is to protect the values and morals of our future generation….according to the Bible. Yes, you may say that our religion and our agenda is in the way of needy children on Ohio, but in the long and everlasting run, we are protecting our children. And that Mr Vessels is what this bill protects, OUR children, OUR society, OUR future.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by Plunderbund and express your views. I’m glad you found the site. First know that I’m not Christian, nor is everyone in these United States. We all don’t live according to your bible. We should get that out of the way first. This legislation (now DOA really as even prominent Republicans are speaking out against it) would make it illegal for gays to adopt children, so yes it does decrease the pool of available homes for children. It HURTS KIDS!

    I will have to go back and check, but I’m pretty sure our Constitution says nothing about a “traditional biblical family”. Might be wrong, but dont’ think so. It does, however, guarantee rights for all Americans. Last I checked, most gays born in this country are indeed American citizens.

    You might not like it or agree with it, but we make laws based on our Constitutional principles, not your Holy Bible.

    This bill was nothing more than a hate-filled attempt to legislate your morality and force your beliefs upon us all. The American people would not stand for such a thing, and we can all be very thankful for that.

    I admire your being a foster parent greatly and wish you luck with that. We need more like you who are willing to help children in need. Just please don’t prevent others from doing so because you don’t agree with their lifestyle. It’s about the kids, afterall.

    And I apologize if you were offended by my language. I do try to warn people of it as you’ll notice at the very top of the post. Sometimes I get worked up and the way in which I express this is by fucking cursing! Because this is my blog, I do reserve the full right to fucking say whatever the hell I please.
