Well, I'm watching Bill O'Reilly interview Rosie O'Donnell on the subject of gay adoption, and (surprise) I've detected what I believe to be some falsehood or possibly even unethical behavior on Rosie's part.

Let me tell you, I fund and work for an adoption agency. And we have many cases, and you can call them and get the statistics, when we have a birth mother who is pregnant and she doesn't know the race of the father, she is using drugs and she is in crisis. Usually we cannot place that baby with a heterosexual family. Almost all of the times when we have a drug-addicted child, we place the baby with a homosexual family.

I've got a very good friend who works for an adoption agency. She works with the kind of mothers that Rosie is talking about. She doesn't have a problem placing any of these kids, including the drug-addicted ones, in good, heterosexual homes. If Rosie's adoption agency is having a hard time placing these kids, I don't think the agency is trying very hard. In fact, it almost sounds as though the agency is purposely discriminating against heterosexuals for whatever reason.


The @sdutOpinion Editorial pages used to be fairly mainstream conservative. When I applied for a letters editor opening there in the mid-00s, I was asked if there's an editorial I wouldn't write. I replied: a pro-abortion one. 1/

Supreme Court: “The Second Amendment is not a second class right. States can’t use subjective criteria when issuing carry permits.”
California: “But what if we added in illegal viewpoint discrimination, and violated the First Amendment at the same time?”
