It sounds like the diagnosis is pretty sound and the symptoms have been present for a number of years (since age of 3 if the article is accurate). Since 1 in 30000 people (according to wiki article on disorder) have the disorder it was just a matter of time that a story like this popped up.
How long have married gay people been able to adopt kids?
Why do you pretend that you've accepted Minnesota's decision? You keep posting anti-gay propaganda and views.
And if you want to know why I care so much, it's because you talk about how you're in favor of limited government, BUT YOU REALLY AREN'T! Stop making the rest of us look bad. Seriously.
And your position expands government. Either you don't know what you are talking about, or you are just continuing to tell lies about me. Either way, I didn't have much respect left for you in the first place, but you are just talking out of your ass now.
If you want to explain how redefining marriage = more limited government, I will give you the rostrum and listen.
See, again, here's the thing - whether or not a gay married couple can adopt has nothing to do with limited government or redefining marriage. Virtually none of your posts in this thread have anything to do with gay marriage. You talked about gay adoption, gay couples and sex changes for their children, gay people going to prom, and the effect of gays on culture. You've completely ignored the concept of gay marriage.
Your stated position on gay marriage is that it should be left to the states.
But then you argue against gay marriage using, again, things like gay adoption, gay people going to prom, gays on televisions. None of those things have to do with limited government or limited federal government.
So I need to choose to characterize you as either a limited government guy (where you would make an argument like I do) or as someone who is against gay marriage (where you would make the arguments that you make about gay proms).
Before I answer your question, answer this question first - what does the year in which gay people could adopt children have to do with government recognition of gay marriage?
