Today’s lamest homophobic rant

Patrick WoodenIt comes from the notorious all-purpose far right minister, the Rev. Patrick Wooden of Raleigh’s Upper Room Church of God in Christ. At a pastor’s anti-marriage equality event today near the state Capitol Building, Wooden said the following according to this AP story:

Seventy-eight percent of our children are born into homes where there are no dads. We have a disaster going on. In fact, if we encourage marriage, we won’t need as many government handouts.

Thanks for that brilliant insight, Rev. Pat. I’ll be sure to explain that to my LGBT friends who’ve adopted all kinds of unwanted children from troubled single moms and given them a chance at happy lives.

    Reverend Wooden believes in two concepts…accountability and responsibility. Both of these are foreign to most progressives where everyone is a victim.

    Does this guy understand basic biology? Homosexual couples aren’t responsible for the babies in households with no dads – heterosexual couples who don’t practice good birth control (including the option of abstinence) are. Whether homosexual couples can marry or not has absolutely nothing to do with kids without dads. (Hey, if they were adopted by a homosexual couple they could have TWO dads!)
