Ah, Texas!

The U.S. Lab for Bad Policy

The U.S. Lab for Bad Policy strikes again:

…Parents seeking to adopt children in Texas could soon be rejected by public or private agencies with religious objections. Agencies would be able to reject parents if they were either Jewish, Muslim, gay, single, or interfaith couples, under a new Republican proposal. Five other states have passed similar laws protecting faith-based adoption organizations that refuse to place children with gay parents or other households on religious grounds.

Jeebus weeps.

This isn’t about doing what is best for the child, this is about punishing the potential adoptive parents. It’s amazing that on one hand Texas’ Xristians are going forced-birth, and on the other hand condemning these children to being raised in institutions rather than letting them go to loving homes. As we say here, the right to life ends at birth.

The tell, as they say in poker, that the Xristians are behind it: they are the only major religion that is not called out as unworthy. Good luck getting past the First Amendment challenge that is sure to come.

    Creating unconstitutional regulations is obviously the work of small government/constitutional conservatives. Not to mention they’re evil.

    Whom did these seniors vote for in the recent US Presidential election?:

    Ah, screw those kids without loving homes. They’ll have the chance to grow up and be like Trump.

    I know a lot of great liberal/progressive Texans but, face it, they are drowned out by the worst sort of genuinely evil people.

    And today, continuing Texas’ great tradition of rabid anti-big-gubblemintism, we now have an unfunded mandate requiring local police enforce federal law.

    Pray for me, please, that our time in this hell that is Texas will soon be over.
