Alan Keyes, former Republican presidential candidate and current long-shot Illinois senatorial candidate, has claimed that the children of gay parents will inevitably end up comitting incest simply because they do not know who their biological brothers and sisters are:
“Whether they mean it or not, that is what will happen. If you are masked from your knowing your biological parents, you are in danger of encountering brothers and sisters you have no knowledge of.”
What the…? While that’s intended to be a screed against gay couples, it actually is anti-adoption, regardless of the couple’s sexual status. When a gay couple adopts a child it doesn’t magically erase the kid’s files at the adoption agency or hospital, at least no more than it would if it were a straight couple.
Keyes has become a liability for the RNC, especially now considering the majority of Americans support gay adoptons and, obviously, the concept of adoption itself. It seems he’s only running against Obama at this point to effectively end his political career, because there truly is no other explanation for his lacking performance.
All I can say: Good riddance.
