Alan Keyes is Anti-Adoption

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.

    Gay people cause incest? Alan Keyes is just. . .wack. The chances of adopted kids meeting and mating is nil. Besides, most contemporary adoptees know they are adopted. Any possiblity of dating a sibling is less than ever. Keyes has already made it clear he considers gays perverts, though, strangely, the GOP, including the Cheneys, ignored his remarks. Come to think of it, perhaps Alan Keyes is adopted. . .from another planet.

    Justin, there is no chance Keyes will quit. He pays himself a salary out of campaign contributions, thereby making perennial runs for office a job.

    I haven’t been following this election very closely, but from what I have gathered, Keyes has completely misplaced his remaining marbles

    If he garners 25% pf the vote, he’ll claim a “moral” victory. It’s that bad.

    “Alan Keyes is ignored by most everybody” Except the Republicans who drafted him into this race. It’s funny how many people the Republicans have to “apologize” for, Alan Keyes, druggy Rush Limbaugh, and now “lesbian” Mary Cheney and her “Ashamed” Mother Lynne.

    People are judged by the company they keep, perhaps political parties shoud be too.

    Keyes is so thoroughly getting his ass whooped in Illinois, that Barack Obama has been spending his time traveling to other states to help campaign for other Dems. He was here in Colorado just this week.

    Keyes has about as much credibility right now as Nader.

    But, he is smart in sneaky way. He does not have to win elections to keep his ‘job.’ All Keyes has to do is keep entering political races and collecting campaign funds. He will never have to cut another 9 to 5 for the rest of his life. And, he is assured of a small band of adoring fans. That is what Keyes lives for, not being a successful politician.

    As someone who may be returning to a 9 to 5 gig next year, I have to give him credit for getting around the grind, albeit in an embarrassing way.

    No, he’s not anti-adoption… but he may be anti-CLOSED-adoption. As an adoptee who went thru this terrible self-and-health depriving system… in this very isolated instance, I’d have to agree. Never thought I’d agree with Keyes!

    It’s true, those that choose a sperm donor on line to inseminate one of them are putting their child in the horrible position of having to be grateful for being born without a father. My father was absent but at least I got a choice in knowing who he was. Closed adoption only serves wealthy selfish adopters that would rather have a baby look like them than help the 45,ooo kids in foster care!

    I’m sure some of you are aware of this, but his daughter recently came out of the closet this spring. She did a pretty hyped TV interview on the news here in Chicago after Keyes disowned her and refused to pay her tuition at Harvard for being gay. She also said that she had already told him she was gay before the campaign. That’s noteworthy because Keyes was asked how he would treat his daughter if she were gay as a hypothetical. Keyes infamously responded, “IF I had a gay daughter, I would tell her she’s a selfish hedonist.”

    What a guy.

    That is all.

    This is a true ‘once-upon-a-time’ adoption story. Within it’s telling, revealed are the seedy practices once employed by one Rosie O’Donnell funded — Children of the World Adoption Agency. [COWAA] It ‘was’ located in Verona, New Jersey.

    I allude to the past tense so it is not mistaken of mind that this agency’s doors have indeed, remained self-closed since May of 2007. It is also from within these walls where plots were conceived and masqueraded around the workings of a real adoption agency. Therein, it is even apparent in Rosie’s own penned words that she agrees with these activities. Sadly, one thing definitely not found in her book “Find Me” was a way to read between its lines. And as for this agency’s downfall; the reasons lay in the dark history behind its corporate suicide!

    Had someone found this company’s blueprint for wrongful adoption?

    Yet, there wouldn’t be any such findings if the public would have inquired about this closure from the State. – Government spokesperson, Douglass Swann would not have given such an implicating description of its dissolution. How do I know these details?

    … It was me that forced the State Attorney General Office to lean heavily on an already suspect New Jersey Department of Human Services. They in turn, were instructed to offer unto COWAA a take it or leave it proposition for the Board of Trustees. That thought withstanding, and whilst all faces were longer than the table at which they sat, it must have been the Chairwoman of the Board, a Mrs. Margaret Morrisey, who probably thought it better to reserve the company a more preferable choice-spot in hell! This of course, if there is such…

    How did this all come about? …Truly, in a picture painted by ART! [Adoption’s Real Triad!] This three-party dynamic of the New Jersey adoption machine has members that consist of an adoption attorney, an adoption agency and the New Jersey Office of Licensing [OOL]. Moreover, all three factions would unwillingly participate in an unwanted conspiracy. It is your choice for reason, be it greed or the betterment of mankind?

    Therein, it was in 2001 when COWAA executive director Veronica Serio lied to the OOL. Never mind that she is the same woman who had actually helped the late Seton Hall Professor James Boskey write adoption law. […Sell what it is that you secretly destroy?]

    Alas, and as for ART’s last member of this adoption equation, sometimes it just pays to look good while doing what one does! Or as perceived in this case, maybe the following committed acts would avert a possible true human effigy burning throughout the streets of Kendall Park, New Jersey! Although he had committed no wrongdoing, adoption attorney Steven Sklar would eventually lie to the State Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Review Board. This was the second time his lie covered what I call an unethical adoption practice. Astonishingly though, there was not need for the use of his deceit… [N.J.S.A. 3: 3-39, 1 {b, c}]

    The State Statutes of law grant all adoption attorneys the power to hide adoption fraud busting evidence. However, if word was to get out that his practice had withheld evidence…; well uh, does anybody have a cigarette lighter?

    Sadly, and in reference to the state of affairs in Jersey, my victory in overturning an initial attorney ethics case dismissal ended up dashed at the Supreme Court’s doorstep. I further realized the futility of it all when my mind grasped the intent of a letter sent by these so-called “of the esteemed.” Their corresponding words were marked of brilliance. They profoundly state, “Your grievance, even if true would not constitute incapacity or unethical practice.” This is odd, because it had worked in the demise of COWAA!

    My son was born on October 20, 2001. I think he lives in New Jersey.

    It is by the right to bring out the truth by means of the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, and my faith in God that allow me to make plans to one day meet my son. He will hear the real story.
