Arkansas judge kills anti-gay law

An Arkansas judge has struck down a law in that state prohibiting foster children from living in homes where gay adults reside. The AP reports that County Circuit Judge Timothy Fox ruled:

the regulation seeks to regulate "public morality" - something the board was not given the authority to do.

And despite misinformation spread by Leviticus dittoheads, the reality remains...

Fox cited the testimony of sociologists and psychologists that gay people can be as loving and caring foster parents as heterosexuals, and that the children of gay adoptive parents can be as well-adjusted as those raised by heterosexual couples.

Expect the response from right-wing politicians and the Stay-Puft Falwell to be the usual, "Nuh-uhhhh!"
