Page One Q has a story about Debra Maggart, R-Hendersonville, who's taken the position that gay couples adopt children to molest them and therefore shouldn't be allowed to adopt.

I'll let that sink in.

"We also have seen evidence that homosexual couples prey on young males and have, in some instances, adopted them in order to have unfettered access to subject them to a life of molestation and sexual abuse."
Yup, that's right. If you're gay, that means you must be a child molester and should be treated as such regardless of things like probable cause or evidence. Welcome to the world of Republicanism. And don't think this will stop with Gays. Atheists, Liberals, I'm looking at you.
In the e-mail with [to] the Vanderbilt student, Maggart said research shows most homosexual couples have numerous emotional dysfunctions and psychological issues that may not be healthy for children. [emphasis mine]
I'd like to know exactly what research. And I'm willing to bet (even if I don't have 'research' to back it up) that a lot of heterosexual couples who have children have emotional dysfunctions and psychological issues that could be unhealthy for children. But that doesn't matter, they're not icky gays. Right?
