Anti-gay group: Chief Justice Roberts' decision to adopt "second-best"
John Eastman, chairman of NOM, told AP:
[quote]"You're looking at what is the best course societywide to get you the optimal result in the widest variety of cases. That often is not open to people in individual cases. [bold]Certainly adoption in families headed, like Chief Roberts' family is, by a heterosexual couple, is by far the second-best option,[/bold]" said John Eastman, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage. Eastman also teaches law at Chapman University law school in Orange, Calif. [emphasis added]

He's okay, isn't he? Even if he was appointed by you know who.

They should totally put that on the record for Roberts to see. Great idea.

How shitty. Does that mean adopted kids in general are "second best." How nice to have a caste system among different types of families.

Blah! Homosexuals make the best parents and pet owners. They usually carry a higher degree of humanity.

The study used to supposedly demonstrate the superiority of raising children with one father and one mother compared hetero couples as parents vs. single parents. Comparison with same sex couples was not studied. But it is consistently misused.

I must be missing something. I don't get this.

As I recall, there were quite a few entered in the Prop 8 case. They showed no difference between mixed-sex and same-sex.

Is it possible that NOM and the like believe that Roberts may actually be in favor of the upcoming gay rights cases and are firing off this crap as some kind of warning to him?

I should be embarrassed and deeply ashamed that I find John Roberts very fuckable, shouldn't I?

What "study?" I haven't seen references upthread, in the Ameriblog article, or the AP article it references.

R18, see 10.
I don't know whether or not Roberts is gay but what is the big problem with adoption? And we're not even talking about same-sex couples. Seems like NOM is just going out of their way to be ridiculous.

Let's not forget that morbidly obsese Maggie Gallagher procreated without the benefit of marriage. Years later, when she finally got some guy to marry her, it didn't last. He left her two years ago.
In all the years of her gaybashing fight against marriage equality, no member of the media has asked why the founder of NOM is a total failure when it comes to marriage.
Her obsession with gaybashing screams self-hating closet case. Her photo should be in the DL dictionary next to caneface.

r17, but what kind of "warning" would that be? Supreme Court justices are appointed for life. It's not an elected position. And I doubt they try to impeach him (you'd think they would've tried after the Obamacare ruling); now, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, I do think there are justifiable grounds for impeaching them.

The only thing I get out of this is that the NOM are out of touch, delusional bullies.

I think the warning is they know he's gay and they intend to out him if he doesn't rule their way.

Reading that actually made me feel sorry for Roberts' family, especially his kids.

It's going to backfire, just like Romney's negative campaign ads.
