Rep. Steve King Doesn’t Want Children Stolen By Homosexuals To Be Raised In Warehouses

Iowa’s Rep. Steve King, one of the most LOLiest of all House members, was certainly the main draw at NOM and FRC’s bus tour this week, encouraging voters to oust the State Supreme Court justices who ruled to legalize same-sex marriage. Using his name, organizers got a whole 20 people to show up in Cedar Rapids! (To be fair, another 20 showed up to protest them, and that was after some 150 people rallied at the court house in support of the justices.) But that wasn’t where King relayed his most impressive remarks.

Those were reserved for the Iowa Independent. King, who used his tenure in the Iowa State Senate to author a Defense of Marriage Act, told the newspaper fun things like,

I think that if we can’t defend marriage, that it becomes very hard to defend life. Marriage is the crucible by which we pour all of our values and pass them on to our children, and that is how the culture is renewed each time. So, if we lose marriage — for instance, if our children are raised in warehouses, so to speak. There have been civilizations that have tried to do that. The Spartans did that. They took the children away and taught them to be warriors. It’s a good way to defend a country, but not much of a way to run a civilization.

So, I’m afraid if that happened — if we lose the marriage, we lose the home, we lose the nuclear family then we can’t teach our values. We won’t be able to teach our faith. We won’t be able to teach life. We won’t be able to teach our Constitutional values either. That’s why I’m afraid it’s going to be very, very difficult to defend life.

And there’s your friendly reminder from Rep. King, whom voters actually elected to office, that homosexuals want to steal your children and raise them for their resistance army.

      With more and more children being raised by single parents, sitting in foster care, or waiting for adoption he wants to prevent the creation of new families and the spread of family values.

      Well there goes the family and the home alright…OURS!

      Excuse me, But WTF????????????

      Once upon a time you could possibly squeeze a tiny drop of sanity out of the incoherant babblespeak these lunatics spewed. This scumbag is so very far off the charts that he is most likely would qualify for a clinical certification of insanity……….

      Reading this story, I remember being in the Houston Galleria two years ago just before Christmas.

      A young boy, probably about 3 years old, had misbehaved and his dad had disciplined him by taking away his helium balloon. The boy was crying so hard it made my heart break. His other dad picked him up, held him, and then I heard him tell him he’d done a bad thing and this was his punishment. The boy had his arms wrapped around his dad’s neck so hard and crying – dad had his arms around his son holding him close.

      The other dad had tears in his eyes as I could tell it hurt him to see his son crying but he was being a good parent. This boy had two dads and it was obvious to me they loved their son very much.

      So tell me Mr King, how does this indicate a warehoused raised child? I have seen straight parents in public and spanking the be-daylights out of their children or completely ignoring them. Tell me sir, who is being the better parent here?

      For a child to feel safe he has to feel loved. Love is the strongest bond that can be created and it was as plain on the nose on my face, or yours, that this boy was well and truly loved by his two dads.

      Rep. King knows more about Sparta than he does about 21st century same-sex couples and LGB singles raising their kids at home!

      He forgets that LGBs don’t corner the market on single parenting. Str8 singles are raising millions of offspring!.

      In my extended circle of LGB friends/acquaintances, several couples and several singles have gone through the process of adoption and 2 or 3 have gone through or going through the surrogacy process.

      Both options are time consuming, nerve wracking and expensive. (And I’m not ignoring that many M-F couples also go through this also, although they have the option to pursue fertility treatments before adopt./surrog.).

      Any chîld whose parent(s) go through the hurdles of adoption/surrogacy is clearly very much wanted and planned for. That little person is NOT the result of a faulty condom or an overlong happy hour!

      His notion of “warehouses” is clearly mistaken, and laughable except for how he sees that as the logical next step in LGB parenting. He needs to read more newspapers and fewer comic books.

      P.s. Maybe he forgets about the ever popular option of boarding school used by wealthy folks to keep their children out of state or overseas for 10 months a year? We gay people didn’t invent that !!
