Ironically I first ran across this interesting “justification” of same sex parenting when I was researching the story of a young boy who was trafficked and sexually exploited by his “dads.”
I still grieve for him and the terrible tragedy of his life with them…and I ask who will pick up the pieces?
There are plenty of wretched parents of all sorts of backgrounds, and I do not–not think that homosexuality disqualifies a person from great parenting any more than I believe that heterosexuality engenders great parenting.
Let’s face it, most of us are just ok parents, and some of us are just plain lousy.
But back to the marquee statement–
Jesus had two dads…and he turned out ok.
When I read that statement my first reaction is–really?!?
And my second is–have you read the story?!!
Dying beaten and broken on a Roman cross is not ok.
It is the death of a criminal.
Jesus died with murders, thieves, terrorists.
He believed he was paying the ultimate price for a broken world.
