Ohio lawmakers introduce gay adoption ban

Like a dagger through my heart into the very marrow of my soul, I read the news this morning and the the blade appeared to my eye:

Emboldened by the passage of Ohio's broad anti-gay constitutional amendment in 2004, conservatives now seek to limit parenting rights for LGBT people in the state.

Ten members of the Ohio General Assembly this week introduced HB515, the so-called “Adoptive and Foster Children's Protection Act,” which would legally prevent foster-care and adoptive children from being placed in the home of a gay, bisexual or transgender person (Gay.com).


I don't really know what to say. Can we get a ban on Evangelicals from having children? Every person I have ever known who converted to this hate-filled and dangerous incarnation of Darbian Christianity has become a danger to themselves and others. The solipsism of Evangelical Christianity is stunning at times. There is no evidence the GLBT parents are any different from non-GLBT parents... except they are usually older, more financially well off, and are incapable of accidentally having a child.

We have to stop this irrational hate of GLBT people, and move forward.

My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple.  I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night.  My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
