Utah Attorney General tells Judge to Deny Adoptions involving Same Sex Couples

I don't know which is more egregious - the State prohibiting gay marriages or dictating who can or cannot be a parent by specifically saying that a gay couple cannot adopt a child even in situations where the biological parent consents!  Although Texas passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriages (which was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge in San Antonio), Texas does allow step parents or other persons to adopt a child so long as the other parent consents regardless of gender. Texas recognizes that is the legal parent's absolute right to share his or her parental rights or responsibilities.  Read more about the Utah debacle here.
