But it's bad for kids to allow gays to adopt...

Despite having nineteen kids and two grandchildren, the Duggars are apparently considering adopting yet more children. Michelle Duggar says, "We are praying about it, and we will see what God has in store. Love for children has been placed on our hearts."

I like this terse comment below the article: "Hoarding is a disorder." True, but I don't think fundamentalists see it that way. Apparently it's a wonderful thing for Quiverfull advocates to adopt, even if they have more children than most of us could possibly imagine coping with, but let a gay couple want to adopt a single child, and the child will supposedly be damaged somehow. Go figure. Personally, I suspect it's better for kids to be adopted by a loving couple (even-- gasp!-- a gay couple) that isn't already overwhelmed with a swarming mass of children.
