Former GOP Senator Trolls Conservative Blog, Likens Same-Sex Adoption To “Child Abuse”

448px-Senate_HeadshotThis week in People That Will Make You Lose Faith In Humanity, we bring you former Colorado Senator Dave Schultheis, who told thousands of readers on a blog site this week that same-sex couples adopting children is “perverted.”

He wasn’t just talking about any old same-sex couple, either. He was directly referring to Colorado’s first openly gay Speaker of the House Mark Ferrandino and his partner’s recent adoption of one-year-old Lila Augusta, a little girl they’ve been fostering since last year.

The hateful trolling came via the comments section of Colorado Peak Politics, a Conservative blog that announced the news with many congratulations. “While we haven’t always agreed with Speaker Ferrandino’s policy positions, we agree that he’s got one cute kid,” the post read. “Congratulations to the family!”

Obviously enraged by the open-mindedness of his former colleagues, Schultheis posted the following comment:

“To deprive this little girl of a loving mother for the sake of self-gratification is perverted. I would place it in the category of deliberate child abuse.”

The comment has since been removed from the site, but luckily, Schultheis didn’t get away without a handful of scathing replies first. Conservatives taking other Conservatives to task over same-sex adoption? Now that’s progress!

      Republican, TeaPod Party, religious extremists, ad nauseum… why do they all sound the same… intoxicated, drugged, cranky, out-of-sorts, etcetera…? Simple… they’re not happy with themselves. Other people/facts/ have nothing to do with it or them! Pity them!

      @Dakotahgeo: I think you missed the most important part of this story. A conservative blog was congratulating a gay politician for adopting a child! That is progress.

      @bocohomo: bocohomo, I think you’re right!! I am so used to listening to these offbeat locos that when they DO something normal and righteous, it just goes right over my head! Thanks for making me think (and re-read)! Kudos!

      Here is real child abuse, depriving a child of a loving home and two loving parents who will nurture this fine young lady into adulthood. Great job, Shultheis, Colorado Family Services (or whatever they call themselves) should be knocking on your door any day now.

      For every Schultheis, there’s another out of office, right-wing GOPer who suddenly becomes all pro-equality, cowardly so, once it won’t cost them any political capital. It’s an awfully close call which is the greater waste of skin.

      This delusional demonic soulless zombie Rethuglican sheeple, also looks like a child molester! I think he should be thoroughly investigated, no stone left unturned! He looks like all the other suhuman frauds. He is guilty and just trying to create a diversion away from himself!

      Never trust a guy who scowls and smiles at the same time. They’re conflicted. I could see this fucktard in a stall, tapping feet with an undercover officer.
