Texas Bans Gay Foster Parents

Due to the state's heart-warming overabundance of foster families eager to take in abandoned children, the state of Texas House of Representatives passed a bill banning homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals from being foster parents.

What's that you say? There isn't an overabundance of foster families in the state of Texas, or really anywhere else in the nation? Impossible. If that were true, why would the Texas legislature knowingly exclude potential families who are loving and stable because of the parents' sexuality?

Oh, right, because they might turn those foster children gay, or worse, molest them because they're gay and gay people love themselves some molestin'!
