as a gay male, I'll say it. Cut their balls off. As hard as we are fighting for our rights, all it takes it two complete wastes of skin like this to fuel the "justification" against granting gays our civil rights for years. You can bet every evangelist and right wing bigot will be waving this around and using it as justification for "God's work". and yes Lovebug Honey...from now on, let's put pictures of puppies on the new stories that NEED noticing...and yes James, the photo is kind of...I can only assume some sort of other political point attempt, but...went over my head, hit the wall and slid to the floor

4 note its, yet , animals get 123+ note its, this sure sheds light on where care2 members priorities are. they care more about an animal then little children. Here you have your proof. This article will not make front page. But if it was a gay couple treating dogs badly, it would zoom up the charts.

Do you suppose a photo of a social worker with a gun might have been more easily identifiable as relavent to the story? We got some pretty shallow-thinking folks reading on C2.

See, I realized there was an insinuation at play, but it looks to me like its aimed at the "pawns" instead of the "king and queen" (bush would be the queen here). Just trying to be objective.

Now this is not right - I will stick up for Gay Rights etc.because I believe everyone has rights and choices - but as long as they "do no harm" - now this is not acceptable - in fact it is a downright flagrant abuse of their status as foster carers - and the Social Workers had a great responsibility to report them - never mind the homophobic claptrap - it was their sworn duty to do something about it - so unfortunately they are guilty also. People are working their butts off to get the Gay/Lesbian Society their rights get them recognised as decent citizens - and these two go and do something like this - WELL I HAVE TO ASK YOU TO PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE THE WHOLE BY WHAT A FEW DO!!!
There are good and bad in every society.

An abusive gay foster parent is still an abusive parent. Instead of being afraid of a homophobia claim, these social workers should have protected the children.
