    In Florida, if the man and woman were married when the child was conceived, he'd legally be the father. I believe that there are other states with similar laws.

    If Vermont's law is the same on this matter, it stands to reason that Jenkins would legally be recognized as one of the child's parents.

    In Vermont. But the child lives in Virginia, and Virginia refuses to recognize their civil union.

    ... which is why this is (probably) going to the Supreme Court.

    I was specifically addressing Caine's assertion that there would be no legal parental rights here if Jenkins was male.

    Thanks.

    This was the first thing I thought when I read the OP.

    But I guess it has to be an issue before it becomes a non-issue, unfortunately.

    Actually, I never specifically state that this was the point of my comparison.

    It was the biological parent aspect I was trying to get at.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Has anyone figured out on what grounds Jenkins got custody of the kid? The problem I have here, is that Jenkins isn't a biological parent and it appears that the decision was made on PC grounds.

    So what? It's as legal as a church wedding. Both requires civil licenses. Some of us gays and lesbians would rather have the legal status of civil unions than the nod of approval of a church.

    I lol'd. Hard.


    Everyone's thoughts on this impending ****storm?
    Consider the source of the article; WorldNetDaily--they have several 'Christians are oppressed or endangered' articles every day.

    that was my point. when people argue against gay marriage but think a civil union is okay, i'm just pointing out that any marriage outside a church is ONLY a civil union. to me, it's a no-brainer.
