"There is no correlation between the health, welfare and safety of foster children and the blanket exclusion of any individual who is a homosexual or who resides in a household with a homosexual," Associate Justice Donald Corbin wrote in the opinion.
Rita Sklar of the ACLU stated:
"We have a shortage of foster homes in Arkansas, especially for teenagers and sibling groups. Thanks to today’s ruling, Arkansas’ foster children have a better chance of finding loving homes."
Finally, and surprisingly, a voice of reason from the South. But it isn’t over yet. The homohating governor, Mike Huckabee (maybe hick abee would be more appropriate) said today that he would introduce legislation to block gays and lesbians from being foster parents.
Of course, Huckabee is not going to make legislation giving more money to take care of the kids who will not be taken care of when they strip gays and lesbians from adopting and being foster parents. He could care less about the kids here. He is only concerned in looking like he is concerned. Bastard. Why don’t these people put money where there mouth is? Because they don’t really care. It is nothing but a photo-op for these disgusting people.
I think these people should be sued out of existence if they only care about discrimination based on their stupid religious beliefs. It has been proven that kids grow up normally in gay and lesbian families, but that all doesn’t matter when religion gets involved.
