Parent A and Parent B
Kathleen Parker writes today in her columnn,”Parent A and Parent B – and baby makes C” that Mitt Romney, Governor of Massachusetts, is coming under attack from gay groups because he refuses to allow them to replace “mother” and “father” on birth certificates with “Parent A” and “Parent B.”
If I used this example as a hypothetical result of establishing gay marriage, I would be accused of exaggerating the possible consequences — of making up a ridiculous “what if.”
But no. Wer’e already there. It’s real.
And good for Mitt Romney.
(Lucky for him, yesterday the Republican presidential sweepstakes for 2008 opened up significantly, due to the political self-immolation of presidental aspirant Senator Bill Frist . . . the GOP base appreciates politicians who take principled stands on tough issues.)
