According to USA Today, Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin has come out in favor of gay adoption.
Here is the video:
However, Ryan still is opposed to gay marriage.
I have trouble following Congressman Ryan’s logic here. One of the main arguments against gay marriage is that gay couples would be able to adopt and put children in a bad environment. Many opponents of gay marriage don’t care what two consenting adults do with their own lives, but they do care about the children. So, apparently Ryan does not think children being in a home with a gay couple is harmful, but a childless gay couple living together is a major problem.
Personally, I favor all levels of government being removed from the marriage equation. If not that, the more decentralized the better. All people should be able to get civil unions or contracts for the purposes of legal recognition and benefits.
And as for adoption, I favor localities handling adoptions with such restrictions and discretion that they view necessary, including on the basis of sex.
For Ryan, it doesn’t look like he will be running for President in 2016. That is fine by me, because he has proven time and again he is not even the fiscal conservative he claims to be.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Donald Trump has a problem with God. Or more specifically, he has a ‘God problem.’ At least when it comes to voters in South Carolina, for whom Christian faith is often a requirement in a public official. This is simply the reality of the state, not a judgment on religion. But Donald Trump is not credible when it comes | Read More »
