"You're looking at what is the best course societywide to get you the optimal result in the widest variety of cases. That often is not open to people in individual cases. Certainly adoption in families headed, like Chief Roberts' family is, by a heterosexual couple, is by far the second-best option," said John Eastman, chairman of the National Organization for Marriage. Eastman also teaches law at Chapman University law school in Orange, Calif.Because when you're less than two weeks out from arguing cases related to marriage and raising children, the thing to do is viciously and cruelly insult the Chief Justice's family, right?
UPDATE: Chris Johnson from the Washington Blade is at CPAC and just asked NOM's president Brian Brown about the comments. He deflected the question, naturally.
Brown doesn't really answer my Q on whether he shares Eastman view on adoption being "second-best option." Says children deserve mom & dad.— Chris Johnson (@chrisjohnson82) March 14, 2013
