Dependable Erection

"It's about the rights of the child."

Well, it's about the rights of the child, sometimes.

The Boston Archdiocese's Catholic Charities said Friday it would stop providing adoption services because of a state law allowing gays and lesbians to adopt children.

The social services arm of the Roman Catholic archdiocese, which has provided adoption services for the state for about two decades, said the law runs counter to church teachings on homosexuality.

"At all times we sought to place the welfare of children at the heart of our work."

In a 2003 document, the Vatican said gay adoption was "gravely immoral," and that children placed in such homes "would be deprived of the experience of either fatherhood or motherhood."

And since those gay parents wouldn't be allowed to be members of the Catholic church, that's a whole bunch of little boys that that would be denied the experience of being "mentored" by pedophile priests, right?
