Rupert Everett Comes Out Against Gay Parents

This past Sunday, an openly gay actor caused the gay community to turn on him.

In an interview, Everett said, and I quote: "There's nothing worse than gay parents."

That Everett holds that opinion is surprising. That he voiced it is even more surprising. What isn't surprising is that his own community is now turning on him. Also what isn't surprising is that his opinion is based on facts.

Every study ever done that wasn't paid for by GLAAD says what everyone knows: children are better off in traditional, two-parent, mommy and daddy homes. That isn't opinion, it is science. But GLAAD doesn't care about science. They care about agenda. And when the science doesn't align with that agenda they throw science out the window. Everett has every right to voice his opinion on this subject. That GLAAD would bash an openly gay man because they don't like a position he holds shows how far they are willing to go to advance that agenda.

This reminds me of a scene from the movie "The Family Stone". Sarah Jessica Parker's character in that movie states the obvious: that parents would never hope that their child was gay. She explains goes on to explain that parents that want what is best for their children would never hope for a lifestyle for said children that would create so many challenges.

The other characters in the movie quickly circle the wagons to try and shut her down. Even though they, like any reasoning person, would have to agree with her premise. It doesn't mean that you love your child any less if they do turn out to be gay, only that parents in general would hope for a more normal lifestyle for their children.

Sometimes the truth is hard for people. That is why the Bible is so rejected nowadays. Because the truth it shines light on isn't popular. Truth isn't always popular. Rupert Everett is finding that out the hard way right now. But it doesn't make it any less the truth.
