Foster Care Aside

Glad to hear common sense prevailed in Missouri, although not without some valiant effort on the part of bigots. Can we start focusing on finding foster families who don't beat, abuse or neglect our most vulnerable citizens - children whose biological parents have beaten, abused, neglected or rejected them, and who are wardens of the state as a result - and stop focusing on ensuring that qualified gays and lesbians aren't allowed to care for them? When you've got the foster care system working and more qualified applicants to be foster parents than you can handle, you can start discussing whether gays and lesbians should be allowed to.

Sadly, I have the feeling pervasive bigotry against gays and lesbians will be a thing of the past long before we fix our foster care system.
