As the gay adoption debate shows no signs of resolution in America, the Representative for Hendersonville, Debra Maggart, says she believes gay couples may adopt children for the purpose of molesting them.

In a public email correspondence with a master's student at Vanderbilt University she argued against gay adoption on moral and safely grounds.

"We also have seen evidence that homosexual couples prey on young males and have, in some instances, adopted them in order to have unfretted access to subject them to a life of molestation and sexual abuse," she claimed.

Maggart asserts that her opinion is based in scientific research from Focus on Family, a Christian group. This reputedly proves that many gay couples have emotional dysfunction and psychological issues, which would not be healthy for children to be around.

"I have strong convictions," said Maggart. "I just feel kids in our foster care have been through enough. They need the optimum family unit, and that is a mother and a father."

Focus on the Family doesn't do research, it does republican hate-propaganda. All the experts agree gays are no more likely to molest than straights. Since our congress is populated with these idiots, it's not hard to see why there's so much hate legislation against gays. I have yet to meet a republican who can deal with facts - they all know the party line inside and out and they can defend it vigorously, but they're all idiots. They argue things that are not true. The experts at the APA say this woman's beliefs are lies.
