Skip to comments.Parent One, Parent Two to replace references to mother, father on passport forms

Goodbye, Mom and Dad. Hello, Parent One and Parent Two.
The State Department has decided to make U.S. passport application forms "gender neutral" by removing references to mother and father, officials said, in favor of language that describes one's parentage somewhat less tenderly.
The change is "in recognition of different types of families," according to a statement issued just before Christmas that drew widespread attention Friday after a Fox News report.
The announcement of the change was buried at the end of a Dec. 22 news release, titled "Consular Report of Birth Abroad Certificate Improvements," that highlighted unrelated security changes.
The new policy is a win for gay rights groups, a vocal and financially generous Democratic voting bloc that has pushed for the change since Barack Obama began his presidential transition in late 2008. The decision follows last month's vote to end the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which gay leaders consider one of their biggest victories in years.
Fred Sainz, vice president of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights advocacy group, called the news "a positive step forward for all American families. It was time that the federal government acknowledged the reality that hundreds of thousands of kids in this country are being raised by same-sex parents."
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, blasted it as reflecting the "topsy-turvy world of left-wing political correctness."

How appropriate in the Bizarro-world of Obama and his ilk. No sense of reality; ideology trumps human nature and thousands of years of history. Kind of like the Nazis and their Aryan race and the Communists and their Workers utopia. The road is going to get bumpier; put on your seat belt and keep the Constitution (and your right to bear arms) handy.
You really have to feel sorry for kids raised by people like this....Hay, Parent1, would you help me with homework. Parent2, can I have some candy? Or...to friend My Parent2 helped me make this...or My Parent2 spanked me last night!
Wait a minute...Elton John....Two fags and a surrogate...
Or, what....Grandparent1 took me to school today, and Grandparent2 will pick me up.
Elton John has hired two confirmed lesbos to raise his “whatever”.
So, do the parents have to duel each other to the death to establish which of them is parent one and which is parent two?
Or is it ladies first?
WTF is this???!!!
This is ridiculous! OK, I would propose this. Leave the status blank and let the people fill in what they want. If I had a family, I would put “father” in my blank and “mother” in my wife’s. If someone wants to put in “dom” and “be-otch” in there, fine. It is time to call the lefties at their own game and say, “you are always for choice, let me have my traditional choices.” I prefer to leave it as it is, but if they are doing crap like this, call them at their own game.
Destroy America and their Founding principles and all traditions and you destroy the culture.
Natural Law Theory = Wrong
God’s Laws = Wrong
Moral Absolutes = restricts freedom to do immoral acts. Got to instill the “feel good, then it is good” paradigm of chaos.
These arrogant bast*rds think they are smarter than the geniuses of the last two thousand years who gave them the freedom and time to waste their time thinking up this garbage.
They have to destroy Natural Law Theory to destroy this nation...that means giving special rights to destructive unnatural behaviors and force those images into the heads of your children so they will grow up thinking homosexuality is a “good” and the Bible is “hate speech”.
These cultural Marxists are rewriting history and morality so it is meaningless and destroys the culture. They kill off the “under the Creator” paradigm so they can enslave the masses in America. Very clever—through the “back door” so to say.
I believe Hillary overrode this and made them change it to “Parent 1 or mother, Parent 2 or father.”
When two rump rangers or two carpet munchers have a baby WITHOUT THIRD PARTY INTERVENTION (ie, they have a baby without some surrogate or donor), let me know.
IT'S NOT NICE TO FOOL MOTHER NATURE, but we're supposed to "accept" these sex deviates as a new species or something?
In today’s family court Parent 1 is ALWAYS biomom who gets custody 86% of the time. Parent 2 is usually disposable except for his wallet. The homosexual community will soon find this out when they start divorcing en masse.
I doubt there are hundreds of thousands.
SO, now we can fight over which parent gets second billing. “Sorry, dear, but you’re number 2....”
We cannot go pagan fast enough for the wicked folks planning the demise of this nation.
If you crossed out Parent 1 and Parent 2 on the form, and instead wrote in Mother and Father, would you be denied the passport?
That is all a sell-out to the Gay Power lobby!
How about two blanks, like this?
“PARENT_____________PARENT_____________Note: If you need additional space, please insert a continuation sheet. By doing so you recognize that your passport, if approved, will be only valid to exit the U.S. No Return”
If Polyamory ever passes in this country (it’s next)
then it will be , Parent#1, Parent#2, Parent#3. #4.etc.
And why not?
