DOJ: Children Do Not Need- and Have No Right to- Mothers

Photo Credit: APThe Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.

The Justice Department’s argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended California’s Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.

The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.

The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each.

“The [California] Voter Guide arguably offered a distinct but related child-rearing justification for Proposition 8: ‘the best situation for a child is to be raised by a married mother and father,’” said the administration’s brief submitted to the court by Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr.

    Studies have found out that traditional families have children that are more normal children than those raised in homosexual families. It has taken several years to find what damage is done to children in abnormal families. It seems that the homosexual groups are trying their best to keep this information under wraps, so they can keep recruits coming for another generation.

      You are absolutely right. They have given us this false information to forward the 1961 Communist goals.

    Imagine the horrors of being an orphan adopted by homosexual parents. What chance does a normal child have of avoiding this freakish lifestyle if they are exposed to it 24/7!

    • The only chance they have is from the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. And the best way for children to receive that opportunity is in a traditional family with a father and mother.

    • I’m sure it’s better than not being adopted and growing up in an orphanage.

      • Samurai_Sam

        Glad to hear your so sure. I think I’d opt for the orphanage

          Me too!

  • Destroying the traditional family will destroy communities and ultimately our nation. The reason behind the radical push to kill babies in the womb, destroy traditional marriage and promote the gay agenda, even to the care of children is really to achieve one goal: eliminate GOD the Creator, Savior, and ALMIGHTY Soveriegn in our nation and stop the spreading of the Gospel from and in our country.

    GOD will not be destroyed, blocked or removed from His throne. It would behoove all to come with a humble, broken, repentent spirit, before Him.

    “As surely as I live,” says the LORD, “every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall acknowledge GOD.”—Romans 14:11

    The world elite have been trying to break the family unit for decades. Rip families apart, destroy morality while destroying the honor of traditional marriage while promoting homosexuality and you will have destroyed the Constitutional Republic.

    Satan is alive and well in America. It is time to cast him out, out of the White House, out of the Senate, out of the House of Representatives out of our schools, and yes, out of our churches ! Be bold, be strong for the Lord our God is with us.

  • Tita Gascoin

    Obama is the perfect example of what happens to children when they are not raised by a father or mother : a narcissic personality disorder. We need to pull away from this liberal nonsense, too many people are following the lying mouth who is destroying America.

  • Sadly, our society is sliding down the slippery slope at an ever increasing rate of speed. I personally feel that the Christian community has been asleep at the switch for a long time and we are seeing the result now. Our only hope of saving this nation is if there is a large-scale revival.

  • Why does this ask for discussion? Clearly it’s Communism in it’s finest hour!

  • silverbackV

    No surprise here, decades ago, it was declared that after conception, fathers didn’t need to be there. That’s work out well.

  • rmwayne

    This is all about these Obama communist creeps pushing for more left wing evil indoctrination of children. This is another reason I really think we’re living in the last days before Armegeddon. The federal govt. is playing the role of parents and Obama (Satan) is so jealous of and wants to be God so badly he can taste it.

  • Dee

    SOCIETY needs to have children with a father AND mother to prevent further deterioration of society. The Obama administration gets more absurd each day.

  • dextermassolettisr

    “The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.”
    Words spoken by someone in the DoJ who does not have a mother, cannot identify a father and does not belong in any offical capacity of any public office.
    Who are these people? what are their names or asumed identity?
    Close to the time of The Big Roundup.

    RE:In order to keep our second Amendment our Constitution as well we have to do away with the Federal Department of Education. The Federal Department of Education is brain washing our children in Socialist thinking. Socialist thinking is opposite of Constitutional Republic thinking. The Federal Department of Education is having our children taught socialism, teaching our children not to think like Constitutional Republic Patriots. Socialism is the dumbing down of a society and the destruction of human will. The Federal Department of Education has to be abolished at all cost.

    Please add an amendment to your request to the Supreme Court…for my signature…that men in the DOJ no longer need penises. They are merely hanging chads.
