One response to ““Goodbye Ward & June”; American Family Values

    It seems that a problem with this discussion within Christian circles is that we’ve been taught, doctrinally, that learned “absolutes” are far more important than current needs.

    So if thousands or millions of children wind up homeless and starving, that’s still better than if they had had the chance to be raised in a homosexual home, because even though all gathered evidence points to the contrary, they’d all wind up being evil hedonists possessed by the devil, or some such.

    There seems to be an attitude that only straight Christian parents can raise kids right, despite the fact that they’re given no more training on the subject than anybody else (often less, I suspect) and many of the Christians I know who grew up that way had fairly screwed up home lives. *shrug* But, everybody out there who grew up that way and whose experience was wonderful is going to assume that their experience is in fact normative, and that I’m just exaggerating…because they have to.
