Will of the People?

Tom Minnery from Focus on the Family, writes that last Friday, an Arkansas judge overturned the will of Arkansas voters, who approved a citizen-initiated law in 2008 specifying that only married couples could adopt or serve as foster parents. The law's intent was to guarantee Arkansas' kids the best chance to grow up in society's most nurturing homes, those headed by a married mother and father. However, the judge accepted the ACLU's argument, opening the door for cohabiting, non-married couples--whether same-sex or not--to adopt or foster children.

At Focus, we believe that committed marriages between a man and a woman are the essential building blocks of not just healthy families, but a healthy society, too. Most Americans agree, as reflected by repeated citizen approvals of 30 state marriage-protection amendments
