Recently, a judge in Utah ordered that a foster child be removed from a home with two lesbian parents and placed with a heterosexual couple on the grounds that “kids in homosexual homes don’t do as well as they do in heterosexual homes.”
Predictably, Bryan Fischer came rushing to that judge’s defense on his radio program today, declaring that “no culture would ever want to adopt policies that are harmful, dangerous and risky to children.”
“That means we should never countenance policies that place children in same-sex households, whether it’s foster care or whether it is adoption,” he said.
Fischer also came out against single-parent adoptions as well, before citing Mark Regnerus’ repeatedly debunked study to claim that children raised by lesbians are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused.
“The risk of sexual abuse, unwanted sexual touching, is 10 times higher in a lesbian household than in a heterosexual household,” he said. “So if we care about the sexual purity, the sexual integrity of our children, which I do, then the last place we are going to want to put a child is in a lesbian household.”
“So good for this judge,” he concluded. “I am 100 percent standing behind him.”
