Jews and Gay Adoption Law

In my capacity as editor of Gay Humanist Quarterly, I was invited to write a comment piece for Totally Jewish on the issue of exemptions for religious groups from having to provide services to gay adoptive parents, following a feature they ran in the previous edition.

I argued that the Jewish community, particularly, should support anti-discrimination issues and should be very wary of so-called "conscientious" opt-outs:

"It’s hard to accept, but antisemites also have consciences. Should anti-Jewish discrimination be overlooked if the perpetrators claim it is a conscientious objection to Jews, not blind prejudice? If so, all manner of far-right bigots would suddenly become very pious indeed."

The full article is here.

You gay fuckers shud never be allowed to keep pets let alone adopt kids. you cant procreate so have to take someone elses kids that could go to a proper heterosexual home and receive input from both sexes.
Shows how fake and un-natural your sexuality is!
