    Do the adoption forms actually ask “Are you a homosexual?” That is so bizarre.

    It should be no surprise to anyone that an advocate of anti-gay bigotry would advocate bigotry against other groups as well. I seriously doubt that his bigotry stops at Native Americans.

    In general, when I hear someone spouting about how America should discriminate against gays, I just assume that the have similar attitudes about blacks, Latinos, Jews, etc.

    Hopefully, this will backfire on them. Amazing how these people get away with all the lies, distortion.

    “he would also consider banning Native Americans from adopting”

    Wow, now that’s anti-American.

    I’m going to have to stop throwing that term around so casually.

    This is awesome! Who needs to discredit this idiot’s testimony when it does it all by himself?

    My step-father is Native American, and my mom is an anthropologist who specializes in white-Native American relations. I’ll be sure to forward them a link to that article.

    Homer,

    Yes, the Florida adoption form specifically asks if you are a “homosexual” and also if you are a “bisexual” male or female.

    This is based on Florida Statute Title VI, Chapter 63.042 Who may be adopted; who may adopt.–

    If you would like to see the form for yourself, here is that link:
    CF-FSP 5071 – Adoptive Home Application

    In the search field for “Form Number:” just enter “CF-FSP 5071” and this will take you directly to the PDF version of the Florida Adoption form. You will find the question on Page 4, Section G. This is in the “Life History” section, right underneath section F., “Arrest Record”

    Considering that this law comes from 1977 thanks to Anita Bryant. Back when gay people used to be arrested just for being gay. The times may have changed, but Florida hasn’t.

    It’s really sad that a supposed “academic” would hold such “campy” views about Native Americans as portrayed by old western movies and popular media. I.E. Native Americans are just a bunch of drunks.

    I’m sure that Mr. Rekers probably doesn’t even know a single Native American.

    Living here in Phoenix, AZ and the Southwest in general I have personally interfaced with many Native Americans and they are just like us, people! No better, no worse. Just different. Just like ALL of us.

    Mr. Rekers seems to be more racist with his statements about Native Americans than a man of science.

    I would surely hope that Florida is living in 2008, the 21st century.

    But then again, they did just pass Amendment 2 by a large enough margin to amend their Constitution and they still have a Statewide ban on adoptions by gay people.

    Maybe they will find Mr. Rekers’ ludicrous claims valid.

    Heck, they probably think that us Arizonans are still fighting against the Indians and rounding our stagecoaches to protect us from the savages attacks! LOL!

    This would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad! :-(
