Clothing designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are famous homosexuals. They were an item for 23 years before breaking up in 2005. They are among the leading designers in the world, creators of the tony label Dolce & Gabbana.
They also agree with me, the American Family Association, and the Family Research Council that children need and deserve both a mom and a dad.
In an interview with the Italian magazine Panorama, they said, “We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.”
Note the clear statement that a family based on the unnatural act of sodomy is not in fact a genuine “family” at all. A family begins with a man and a woman married to each other, period. There is no other place for a “family” to begin.
Gabbana added: “The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” Here, he is acknowledging that the idea of a family, consisting of a mother and father and the children they bring into the world, is not a merely human idea, but one that comes from the mind and heart of God.
In another interview, Gabbana added, “I am opposed to the idea of a child growing up with two gay parents. A child needs a mother and a father. I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother.”
Social research abundantly confirms what this out, loud and proud homosexual is saying: it is wrong to deprive a child of the presence, love and nurture of either a mother or a father. In fact, Robert Oscar Lopez, who grew up in a lesbian household, says same-sex parenting is a form of child abuse.
Allowing homosexual adoptions makes the state complicit in this child abuse by deliberately depriving a vulnerable young child of either a mother or a father. No compassionate, caring society should ever do that.
Children tragically wind up in homes with a missing parent because of the inability of their parents to remain together. It’s a tragedy when such a thing happens through human weakness. It is a travesty when it’s deliberately inflicted through the misguided power of the state.
Elton John, in an apoplectic fit of outrage, is now calling for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana. (Apparently, boycotts are the height of homophobia when called by groups like the AFA, but the acme of enlightened activism when called by pro-homosexual activists.)
Said Sir Elton, “I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again.”
Gabbana responded by pointing out that this makes Sir Elton an intolerant bigot. “It is simply arrogant not to tolerate those who think like him! Poor thing! We live in a democratic country and respect the ideas of others.”
Well, he’s about to discover the hard way that while he may respect the views of homosexual activists, they will not respect or even tolerate his views of the family.
Dolce and Gabbana will be relentlessly assaulted by the full fury and hatred of what lesbian writer Tammy Bruce calls the “Gay Gestapo.” It’s not going to be pretty.
They are about to discover that there is a steep price to be paid for being right on the issue of homosexual parenting. We’ll soon see if it’s a price they are willing to pay.
