    Glad to see the defense wasting time on non-entities having a stake in the game. Maybe if they realized that boys in their care shouldn't be contractually banned for life from a father, their case would take on more teeth. Hopefully the stupid will be cured soon in their legal defense team. Putting all their eggs in the religion basket while a whole other party with a much more compelling (supportive to defense) argument remains muted, is a bit daft IMHO.

    Who are the attorneys for the defense?
    I was talking to WorldWatcher.

    Of course there is no contract- ever- that bans a father from a child's life.

    These are children whose fathers have abandoned them. You object to them being adopted by two women- but oddly enough- not by a single woman.

    In either case of course- neither prevents a father being in the child's life.

    Hopefully this visual reminder will help you do that better in the future

    Other than a marriage contract between two lesbians.

    How does that prevent a man from being the father to his children? Any more than a man who divorces his wife and moves 2 hours away?

    One is a contract, the other isn't. And, great debate to have at court in Dumont, with Michigan's orphans having counsel briefing, as required where contractual terms and benefits are shared between adults and (prospective) children.

    How does either prevent a man from being a father to his kids?

    Are the lesbians in Dumont polygamists? Or are they two "married" women in a home seeking to adopt a child where no man will ever be present, by promise of their contract...?

    You would have to ask them.

    I'm pretty sure if the Dumont lesbians are polygamists they would not get the adoption they're after.
