GERMANY – STILL ONE FOOT IN THE PAST(THE FAR RIGHT FOOT)

From THE LOCAL (Germany):

Volker Kauder, the parliamentary leader of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats, said on Monday that homosexual couples had no right to have children.

“This has to be accepted, even if it’s difficult for those affected,” Kauder told the daily Berliner Zeitung. “I don’t think children wish to be raised by homosexual couples.”

Germany introduced "registered partnerships" for same-sex couples in 2001, but stopped short of granting them the full rights and privileges afforded to married heterosexual couples. Homosexuals can legally adopt the children of their partners, but adopting an unrelated child as a couple is not currently allowed.

  1. “I don’t think children wish to be raised by homosexual couples.”

    …or, depending on their mood, children NEVER want to be raised by their parents, gay OR straight! [which is why, short of abuse or neglect, we don’t ask them ;-/]

  2. I don’t think that children wish to go to bed at night, go to school, eat what’s good for them, or not play video games until their brains become like porridge.

  3. I have a sneakin’ suspicion that kids would love to be adopted by you, KJ. But that’s because you’re a big soppy lump who would spoil them rotten and let them get away with anything. You want proof? The Wiener – there’s all the proof necessary.

  4. You are confusing me with my partner, I’m afraid. It’s best that we do not have children as they would grow up to be spoiled rotten neurotic wrecks, and their parents’ sexual orientation would have had nothing to do with it. You want proof? The Wiener – there’s all the proof necessary.
