WASHINGTON --- The American Family Association today criticized President Barack Obama for celebrating households headed by "two fathers" in his Father's Day proclamation.
In his June 18 proclamation, the president said, "Nurturing families come in many forms, and children may be raised by...two fathers."
"This is the first time in our nation's history that a president has used Father's Day as an excuse to promote the radical homosexual agenda and completely redefine the word 'family,'" said AFA president Tim Wildmon. "Virtually all Americans have the common sense to recognize that children need both a mother and a father. Rudimentary biology tells us it's impossible for a child to have two fathers. But here we have the leader of our nation and the Democrat Party celebrating sexual behavior which is contrary to nature and pushing a household structure that we know is harmful to children. This is a sad day for the American family.
Added Wildmon, "This again shows how out-of-step the president is with most Americans. Same-sex parenting is not in any way the moral or functional equivalent of the parenting done by a mom and a dad. Yet our President is so committed to normalizing homosexual conduct that he is putting the twisted sexual desires of adults ahead of the needs of children. "And with his push to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' he's putting the twisted sexual desires of adults ahead of our national security."
