Colombian Bishop Worries That Gay Dad Could Develop Sexual Attraction To His Two Adopted Boys

When asked about Mr Burr’s suitability as a father the bishop said, “I do not know him and I am not accusing him of anything, but one thing is clear and that is that he has homosexual tendencies and he is going to receive a boy of 10-years-old and an adolescent of 13, and between them there won’t be a father-son relationship.” He continued, “He will receive two children at an age when they may be attractive to him, which could be a temptation“.

To balance the crazy a little, though, is this fantastic article about a supportive family with a transgender child: Jonas and Wyatt Maines were born identical twins, but from the start each had a distinct personality. The twin boys were identical in every way but one. Wyatt was a girl to the core, and now lives as one, with the help of a brave, loving family and a path-breaking doctor’s care. Check the first page for a picture of the now-14-year-old twins, Jonas and Nicole.

The article about the bishop is—gah, it's beyond words. But the comments are most encouraging.

And that article about Nicole Maines is really heartwarming.

I just don't get why everyone doesn't respond with "wait, so all straight parents are in peril of being attracted to their opposite gender kids once they're ten and thirteen????" Also, he isn't accusing him of anything??? Pretty sure that's exactly what he's doing. ACK. Thanks for the counterbalance!

I saw the article about Nicole the other day, it made me happy to see that her family is so loving and supportive. Things could so easily be different.

That first article, though? jfc. He's basically calling the guy a pedophile. Homosexuality != pedophilia.

Jesus fuck, would this Bishop be worried if he had two daughters and his dad was straight? I could make the same dumb shit argument >_<

Thank you for posting a more supportive article along with that travesty to bleach my brain with. Go strong family support! ♥

Wyatt appeared beaming at the top of the stairs in a princess gown, a gift from his grandmother.

That is one hip grandma! :D

With that argument, I think the Bish and Herman Cain would hit it off massively. "I don't know but that doesn't stop me from having opinions! I think! About what again? Cookies!"
