Last month, two women were arrested on charges of child abuse after a bruised and malnourished 8 year-old girl was in the couple’s home, along with two other children.
On today’s “Pray In Jesus Name” program, “Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt discussed the case to argue that even if gay couples who have children do not physically abuse them, they are still abusing their kids by depriving them of either a mother or a father.
“Even if a child is not physically abused,” Klingenschmitt asked, “what’s the next worst thing you can do to a child? Is to take away their mother.”
“In the case of homosexual couples who get ‘married,’ so to speak,” he continued, “and then they adopt children, even if they never physically harm those children, they are taking away that child’s right to a mother, or maybe they’re taking away that child’s right to a father. And that, in my opinion, is also abusive”:
