TEXAS April 20, 2005 1:13 PM

Please forgive me if this topic has shown up before, however, I just learned that Texas Republican representative Robert Talton is sponsoring a bill to prohibit Gays and Lesbians from being foster parents. My information from this morning is that this bill has passed the Texas state representatives and will go to the Senate next. It also states that ALL people who apply to become foster parents are asked the question "are you homosexual or bisexual?". If the applicants state "yes" their applications are denied, AND if it is found that applicants are currently foster parents and are homosexual or bisexual the foster child or children will be removed from their household. WHO are these idiots, and don't they think? And what about ALL the foster children who have been abused and neglected in the homes of heterosexuals? I really would like to hear from others who have heard about this, and if there is a petition, or something, to block it yet. Thank You.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Trinity...Here's a link: http://lgrl.org/home/ The Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas (LGRL) works toward the elimination of social, legal, and economic discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity through lobbying, education, and research directed toward the Texas Legislature and other state governmental agencies. LGRL is a statewide organization with members from every region of Texas. We have an executive director and a small staff in Austin, and we are guided by a Board of Directors composed of members residing in Amarillo, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio. The Board meets bi-monthly and as needed.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
