#1 The people who made that law were high on crack. Not only a lebian or gay couple provides a doubous role model (remember that it is in society's interest that people be heteropsexual and have children) but in the case of gays, well men are nuts (as an aside I am one), more prone to violence and madness. That is statistics. And tehre is athe possibility of rape. I don't like the idea of children being educated by a man (except in the case of widower for his biological children) when there is no woman around to, err.., watch him. And here we have two men, the risk is multiplied by two.

I propose that whenever there is an "accident" in these adoptions (ie child raped or killed) one of the legislators who pushed the law is sentenced to death.

#2 This is a good thing, in the long term.

Massachusetts has passed a stupid law, as governments frequently do. It has asked part of society to compromise its principles, in essence for money and souls. That part of society has declined the deal.

Good for them. On the one hand, when religious groups fail to accept the world as it is, we get things fit only for angels or Taliban. However, many of the problems in the world occur when we compromise our principles too much. CC has chosen to stand for principle at a good place. It is well rid of the board members who resigned.

Now it is for the Commonwealth to pick up the slack its intolerance created. Let's hope there's lots of gay couples who want children out there.

#3 The ‘Puritanism’ of modern Political Correctness has returned to the Bay Colony.

While they set out to escape the intolerance of Church of England, the Puritans themselves were as intolerant of other beliefs sending the likes of Roger Williams and Ann Hutchinson out of their domain. Now modern secular ‘Puritanism’ is amok. Maybe it’s time for a return to Crown government as well. Trade you Massachusetts for Alberta and Saskatchewan.

#4 Trade you Massachusetts for Alberta and Saskatchewan.

They'd probably want to throw in Ontario and Quebec and keep Alberta.

#5 Nope. They have to keep Ontario and Quebec. We'll consider some royalty stream from the Alberta oil sands, though - but only if they pay for beefing up security at the border in exchange.

#6 why do people who want to help, have to help everyone equally? If I wanted to set up a private charity that only helps black children or Muslim children, or blind children - that may not be the best thing, but is a good thing for the children I do help. It is more than would be available if I didn't help. Once again the idea of immaculate purity denies good at the expense of perfection.
