Since when was supporting a child's right to have a mother and a father "bigoted bile against gays"?

Since gay rights activists said so.

This shows how extreme gay rights activists are. Defending the rights of all children is "shocking" and anti-gay.

Huffington Post's headline: "Shocking Footage Emerges of Mitt Romney Spouting His Bigoted Bile Against Gays (VIDEO)"

What did Romney say that offended them so much? Romney spoke about the pressure to change birth certificate forms in Massachusetts after same sex marriage was legalized.
    Today, same-sex couples are marrying, under the law, in Massachusetts. Some gays are actually having children born to them. We've been asked to remove the phrase "mother" and "father" and replace it with "parent A" and "parent B." It's not right on paper. It's not right in fact. Every child has the right to have a mother and father.
What is shocking about that statement? Why is it "bigoted" to defend the right of all children to have a mother and a father?

Are gay rights activists more concerned about the feelings of adults than children? They say that doctoring birth certificates by crossing out the word mother and handwriting the word Parent A "could disadvantage the children later in life" when they apply for other government forms such as passports.

It's hard to believe they are acting in the best interests of children when they consider crossing out mother on a form a potential "disadvantage" yet they see no problem whatsoever in crossing out the actual mother from this child's entire life.

What exactly are they arguing here? That going through life with a birth certificate preprinted with Parent A and B is way more important than having a mother?

You know what's really shocking and bigoted? Targeting our most vulnerable and claiming certain children don't deserve equality. Creating a microminority of children purposely deprived of their mother and another subset of children intentionally denied a father for the rest of their lives. That's discrimination. And that's what same sex marriage does.

The government-sanctioned exclusion of mothers for the children of gays is far worse than the inconvenience of manually updating a government form.

Defend pro-gender marriage. Because gender matters to everyone, including children and people with same sex attraction.
