Gay marriage continues to be play the starring role in the liberal play that I call the ‘theatre of the absurd’. It seems a Florida Judge has allowed the birth certificate of a lovely little child to have three names for parents on it. The names are those of the two married lesbian woman and the gay man that donated the sperm.
The decision ends a two-year paternity fight between the couple and a friend of the women who donated his sperm to father the child but later sought a larger role in the girl’s life.
The ruling means the child’s birth certificate will include a biological father and both women as parents in an unusual arrangement approved recently by a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge.
So what does this child put on the forms when enrolled in the local school? The school forms will require parent or guardian names, and the child will have to list 3 names, causing untold numbers of questions, embarrassing letters, news reports, and awkward interviews – all of which the child does not need. Actually, neither does anyone else in Miami-Dade County need this nonsense. Without doubt it will require newly printed ‘tax-payer’ funded school forms by the millions, which will now require an extra line for third-party parents.
Could we have predicted such a foolishness to follow? Of course we could, because we are conservative, and conservatives understand how one thing causes another thing to happen. Allowing gay marriage causes questions about adoption. Allowing gay couples to adopt causes questions about who the parents are. Allowing more than 2 parents on a birth certificate will cause a precedent to be established that will allow any interested third party to get his/her name on a birth certificate thus allowing tax deduction chaos, inheritance civil suits, paternity problems, etc, etc, etc. It opens a Pandora’s Box to a hundred other problematic social challenges – all because one weak-kneed judge didn’t want to be called a homophobe. (That had to be the cause as he was certainly not determining the case based on precedent)
Mark my words – within a year we will hear about another story in which there will be multiple parents listed on birth certificates – or maybe no parents listed at all. Or possibly one parent listed will be a cat or a dog by some sick animal lover who wants to create a legacy for Fido or Mittens.
Regardless, it is a perfect example of how the left continues is senseless push to destroy the traditional family norms and turn marriage and family into some evolving paradigm of impractical foolishness that ‘feels good’.
(Can’t wait for John Howard to weigh in on this…)
