More Gay Bashing From Sen. Jack Harper

A few weeks back, we shared state Sen. Jack Harper's rambling comments about why gays shouldn't be allowed to serve in the military.

Now Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini writes about legislation under consideration by the Arizona Legislature that would put married couples ahead of single people when it comes to adoption:

Recently, a single heterosexual woman (she pointed this out in her e-mail) sent a note to a group of legislators expressing her opposition to HB2148. She believes it is a bad idea to make it more difficult for people like her to adopt, adding that while single individuals often step forward to serve as foster parents, this bill would tell them “they are not good enough to keep (the children) permanently.”

In response she got an e-mail from Sen. Harper that read:

“I am sorry that the legislation is clumsy, but it accomplishes the goal that we are trying to achieve. It's hard to single out gay and lesbian couple [sic] with proper wording in statute.”
