A bill has been filed in the Tennessee House of Representatives and the Tennessee Senate that would prevent anyone that isnâ€™t legally married from adopting, making it impossible for gay couples or individuals to adopt children.
Tennessee House bill HB3713 by John DeBerry (D-Memphis) and Tennessee Senate bill SB3910 by Paul Stanley (R-Memphis) would amend the Tennessee Code (TCA Title 36 and 49) to â€œprohibit any individual who is cohabitating in a sexual relationship outside of a marriage that is valid under the constitution and laws of this state from adopting a minor.â€
Conveniently enough, now that Amendment 1 to the state constitution is in place, the queers have no shot at ever being legally married in this state. Phew, maybe if we can keep them from getting married and from adopting here we can convince them to take their homosexual agenda to another state? I wonder if lesbian couples could still adopt if they could convince whoever that lesbian bed death has long since settled in their relationship?
*In case you don’t know me, I was being sarcastic up there with those last two sentences.
