Once again on their high "moralistic horse"
Senate Bill 507 specifically requires "the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize nonmarital parenthood as a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect."If only they were the fringe.
Grothman isn't just some fringe nut-job. He's the assistant majority leader and a staunch ally of Gov. Scott Walker. Unlike Walker, Grothman is not up for recall because activists were unable to get enough signatures. State Rep. Donald Pridemore (R-Hartford) co-sponsored the bill. (He is not up for recall either.)With one fell swoop single parents are stigmatized as abusers and guilty of neglect just by being single parents.
Is there anywhere these pontificating know nothings wont go?
It is primarily yet another battle in the war on women and since gay rights cannot be pandered to, an assault on the gay community.
So this is what small government is all about.
Appeasing the majority.
Stigmatizing the minority.
It's about power and there is nothing further away from "small government" than that.
