Adoption benefits on hold in Utah for same-sex couples

Sean Reyes, Utah’s attorney general and bigot supreme has blocked same-sex couples from adopting.  The reason you ask? Because the courts are still working on “the issue” of same-sex marriage.  So…same-sex couples in Utah are now not allowed to adopt until the little “issue” of equality is addressed.

Reyes went to the Supreme Court and essentially asked them to stop same-sex adoptions until same-sex marriage issues are addressed.  The Supreme Court honored his request.  The icing on the bigot cake is that there are some couples out there that were legally married (when same-sex marriage was legal in Utah) and who are trying to adopt.   Reyes decided these families should not be allowed to adopt… he is literally going after these people one by one.

If you read a lot of the news articles out there on this it is a bit confusing… The net of it is that Reyes has worked hard to make life difficult for same-sex couples.   So the state of Utah is essentially saying that one straight parent is better than two same-sex parents who are in a loving and committed relationship.

Here is my one question for the people who oppose same-sex marriage and adoption.  Are there other issues you should focus on?
