‘Raised under the GLBT umbrella’
July 03, 2012
Dawn Stefanowicz, a Canadian author raised by an actively homosexual father, discussed her experiences in a recent interview with Catholic World Report.
“Our identity, security, and sense of personal ancestry come from knowing our mother and father; this is lost in homosexual unions,” says Stefanowicz, author of Out From Under: The Impact of Homosexual Parenting.
“Every kid wants to be raised by biological parents who are faithful to one another,” she adds. “They do not want the huge stress of growing up with parents who put their sexual preferences first. For three decades of my life I saw my father pursue one relationship after another. That was his priority. A child cannot have his relational and spiritual needs met in such an environment.”

Unfortunately, attention has been on fulfilling the 'wants' of the 'parents' and little attention has been given to the 'needs' of the children. I read today that Sen. Mark Leno (D)San Francisco has introduced a bill to recognize more than 2 parents under CA state law. Imagine what that may do to children who already play musical chair homes when parents 'break up'. Pray for the children - and stand up for their rights.

Had we thought it through, we would have known that the inevitable sequel to coming out of the closet would be coming out from under the umbrella. It was homosexuals in the APA that lobbied to remove homosexuality from the official catalog of mental disorders, the DSM. Just because they denied it is an illness didn't make it healthy. I know many homosexuals, and their sexuality is the tip of the personality icebergs. We need to pray for them.
