Because kids these days have it too easy. Especially kids in foster care in Florida.
George Rekers supporter, Florida Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Bill McCollum think so. Rather than provide these kids with stable homes with couples that just want to help kids, McCollum has used his platform and candidacy to come out against gay couples serving as foster parents. This is in addition to opposing gay couples being able to adopt children.
When asked by the Florida Baptist Witness about gay couples serving as foster parents, McCollum said (emphasis added),
Q: Should the law [allowing gay couples to serve as foster parents] be changed?
McCollum: I think that it would be advisable. I really do not think that we should have homosexuals guiding our children. I think that it’s a lifestyle that I don’t agree with. I realize a lot of people do. It’s my personal faith, religious faith, that I don’t believe that the people who do this should be raising our children. It’s not a natural thing. You need a mother and a father. You need a man and a woman. That’s what God intended.
Once again, not just an attack on gay families and parents, but an insult to single parents.
