The Disintegration of Integrity

This Short Word Shouldn't have to be Repeated,"  by Chuck Potter

"Regarding Child Custody and the Rights of Homosexuals  and Transsexuals".   When I was in law school studying Family Law in 1983, I forced myself to take on the task of addressing the above question for a course paper.  The problem was that I thought the answer was clear: no rights.  Wrong, then and now.  I still consider homosexuality an unfortunate - and in many cases even an aberrant - life style.  But the issue here is "the best interests of the child".  In that context, there is a lot more to consider.  The following is the paper that resulted from my research and considerations then.  I believe that the information is even more relevant today, as too many children languish in multiple foster homes while the "ideal adoption" never comes.  Please see also the recent article by Al Hunt, as always "full of sound and fury", but on this occasion signifying something important."
