White House Says Kids Don't Need Mom, 2 Dads OK

President Obama's Justice Department is urging the Supreme Court to fabricate a right for same-sex marriage by arguing that better outcomes are NOT achieved by raising children with in-tact families of biological parents.

Of course, totalitarian governments always diminish the significance of parents.

-- From "Obama administration urges Supreme Court to strike down Prop. 8" by Christi Parsons and David G. Savage, Los Angeles Times 2/28/13

The Obama administration has endorsed a constitutional right to marry for gays and lesbians, urging the Supreme Court to strike down California’s voter-passed law barring same-sex marriage as well as laws in at least the seven other states that already provide civil unions.

“Tradition, no matter how long established, cannot by itself justify a discriminatory law,” the administration said in a brief filed with the high court late Thursday. “Prejudice may not be the basis for differential treatment under the law.”

The administration was not required to get involved in the California case, but gay rights groups lobbied it heavily to do so. The groups also have orchestrated a series of briefs on their side by business leaders, prominent [pro-gay] Republicans and others. Although the government’s brief did not go as far as gay-rights advocates have done, it won immediate praise from those organizations.

From U.S. Department of Justice amicus brief ("Friend of the Court" document) filed to U.S. Supreme Court 2/28/13

[Regarding the] child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: “the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father.” . . . As an initial matter, no sound basis exists for concluding that same-sex couples who have committed to marriage are anything other than fully capable of responsible parenting and childrearing. To the contrary, many leading medical, psychological, and social-welfare organizations have issued policy statements opposing restrictions on gay and lesbian parenting based on their conclusion, supported by numerous scientific studies, that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are as likely to be well adjusted as children raised by heterosexual parents. . . . The weight of the scientific literature strongly supports the view that same-sex parents are just as capable as opposite-sex parents.

. . . However, the most comprehensive studies to date on the issue of how children fare being raised by homosexual or heterosexual parents have come to much different conclusions.

Last June, Dr. Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas at Austin found most previous studies suffered serious flaws in data, including relying on unscientific and unrepresentative reports gathered from those who willingly stepped up at women's bookstores and other homosexual venues.

In August, the University of Texas at Austin dismissed charges from LGBT activist and blog author Scott Rosensweig that Dr.Regnerus “harbor[ed] anti-gay prejudices” because he is Catholic.

A study released later in 2012 found the children of heterosexual parents do better in school than those raised by homosexuals.

Dr. Douglas Allen of Simon Fraser University found that children of married parents are 35 percent more likely to make normal progress in school than children who grow up in same-sex households.

From "DOJ: Children Do Not Need—and Have No Right to--Mothers" by Terence P. Jeffrey, 3/3/13

So far in the history of the human race, no child has ever been born without a biological father and mother. Now, in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Executive Branch of the federal government is arguing that, regardless of the biological facts of parenthood, states have no legitimate and defenisble interest in ensuring that children conceived by a mother and a father are in fact raised by mothers and fathers.

The brief that the Justice Department presented to the Supreme Court discussed children only as items controlled by others, not as individual human beings who have God-given rights of their own. It simply assumes that a child has no inherent right to a mother or father and that the only right truly in question is whether two people of the same-sex have a right to marry one another and that that right encompasses a right to adopt and foster-raise children.

To take this view and be consistent with the principles of the Declaration of Independence—which recognizes the ultimate authority of the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God” and says that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”—the Obama Justice Department must advance the assumption that natural law and Nature’s God give children no right to a mother and father and no right not to be legally handed over by the government to be raised by same-sex couples.
