Little Peter’s got his panties in a knot again – it is truly amazing hate hateful these “love the sinner hate the sin” christians really are.
How dare they give benefits to the child of a “civil unioned” couple – it’s enough to make Jeebus go on a temple destroying rant.Vermont inheritance law trumps DOMA
The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel recently ruled that the Social Security Administration should pay disability benefits to the biological son of the lesbian partner of a disabled woman. Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, says the Bush administration “seems to be pulling a fast one.”
“It seems like the Justice Department is relying on a technicality to do an end run around DOMA,” says LaBarbera. “[DOMA] provides that only heterosexual spouses are recognized in federal law. And so, if only heterosexual, normal families are recognized in federal law, how is the Justice Department rationalizing giving benefits to the non-biological child of a lesbian,” he questions.
Children of adults who receive Social Security disability benefits are usually eligible to receive benefits of their own. But in this case, the child is not related by blood or adoption to the disabled woman. And LaBarbera stresses that no one wants to see this child suffer because of the immoral lifestyle of his parents.
“But the purpose of DOMA was to reaffirm the traditional family and real marriage and not allow federal benefits to go to these counterfeit homosexual couplings…,” he contends.
