It's Okay

In yet another election-year non-controversy, Senator John McCain is taking flack for the following statement:

"I think that we've proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don't believe in gay adoption."
Senator John McCain
But gays and lesbians should take heart, and not feel TOO put upon. After all, if it takes "both parents," then Senator McCain must not believe in single people adopting as well, mustn't he?

So while I empathize with gay and lesbian groups in feeling that McCain has singled them out for his hit list, if he really believes that adoption should be limited to "traditional couples" and has a "personal preference for children to be raised by a mother and a father wherever possible," then they aren't alone in the crosshairs.
