David Furnish poses with baby Zachary after Daddy Elton John's turn

Now it's Papa holding the baby (till nanny takes over): David Furnish poses with baby Zachary after Daddy Elton John's turn

First it was Daddy beaming with joy. Yesterday it was Papa’s turn.

Two days after Sir Elton John was seen delightedly playing with eight-week-old son Zachary, his civil partner David Furnish was left holding the baby on a Hawaiian beach.

Not that he had to handle the task unsupported.

Furnish, a 48-year-old film producer, will be known as Papa by the child – with Sir Elton being called Daddy. The star – who turns 64 next month – and his partner became parents to Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John through a surrogate mother in Los Angeles on Christmas Day.

Last week, Sir Elton told how he wants Zachary to have as normal an upbringing as possible, saying he wanted the youngster to have ‘a solid old fashioned childhood.’

He said: ‘I so value my own childhood now, and the sense of wonder and personal discovery that I enjoyed, that we want to give Zachary – as much as we possibly can – the same thing. A solid old fashioned childhood, if you like.’ Sir Elton – who was famously revealed in court to have once spent £293,000 on flowers alone in a 20-month period – went on: ‘I know it’ll be hard with my life, but we want him to have that same normality and for things in life to have real value. ‘So we don’t intend to spoil him – we’re going to try and give him a fun, carefree time of innocence, freedom, love and stability.

No kidding. To see a beautiful baby forced to live in that situation is so sad.

Is anyone surprised that two queers would adopt a male child? This is coming down the pike and your kids are the target. These deviants want same-sex adoption/abuse to become the standard.

I hears over forty five years ago that a man and woman get a baby from the stork.

But Homos get their baby from a swallow.

So much wrong here. Not just the gay aspect, but the fact that Elton is 62, and therefore not likely, especially with his past, likely to make it to the kid’s high school graduation.

On a related note...did you know that the San Francisco 49’s assumed their name because “Packers” was already taken?

Rush could have flown in the entire London Philharmonic for his wedding, and had better music for his guests, without the controversy.

Can’t say it enough times. This is as abhorrent, unnatural, freakish, as the very abomination they themselves demonstrate themselves to be.

Elton is an activist for the abolition of age of consent laws.
The child is likely facing a horific future.

They are holding a prop.

You touch on a good point, namely, what of homosexual parenting? Have there been any studies of how these kids turn out? There’s no question that a wealthy man such as Elton John can give this kid everything money can buy, but I worry about those important things which money cannot buy.

Yes there has been a study.

A long article published in the New York Times no less, followed the lives of children raised by same sex partners. The results were not good. Most children suffered some degree of gender identity. Some with devastating results that impacted their lives very negatively.

I got into it with a liberal in my office about this issue and paid for a reprint from nytimes.com years after it appeared so I know it’s still there. My co-worker refused to read it.

The baby is today’s must-have fashion accessory for today’s gay couples. Rounds out their sham “normalcy”.

Nobody CARES about this fresh little human’s emotional and psychological well-being, or his prospects for a contented life.

His life is as much a human sacrifice on the pyre of political correctness and leftist activism as tribal children cast down volcanoes to appease the gods.

I thought that dude in purple was excited by Furnish’s muscles, but it is just the edge of a diving platform. I don’t think he was taking a picture of the baby. Keep an eye on the guy, Elton.

It was nice to take the baby out of his private suite to a vacation where he could stay with the Hindenburg in another private suite so his crying and feeding won’t bother David and Elton.

Among people with whom I’ve been acquainted over the years, there have actually been four instances of children raised by a same sex couple, three of lesbians and one of gays. None of them were lifelong, though, there was a divorce along the way.

The female children under the care of lesbians turned out lesbian. The male child under the care of lesbians is not gay. The fraternal twin boys raised by male homosexuals, one gay and one not. The one who isn’t gay is estranged and accused them of sexual abuse. The one who is, actually was. He died of AIDS.

So, from what I’ve seen among people I’ve actually known to some degree, it’s not a complete certainty that such children will turn out gay, but the likelihood is a whole lot higher. Only the male raised by lesbians seems to be an emotionally stable adult.

Elton just did two nights of concerts here on Maui. Sold out both shows. Everyone that went said it was outstanding. Elton said he loves MAUI and will be back again. He must be happy because Hawaii just past the Civil Union bill and is already working on the (voted down) Gay Marriage bill. Now that Abercrombie is the Gov. no one doubts it will pass. There are only a couple republicans in all of the state houses. Dems here can do just about anything they want. Lingle was a Repub but now, it all Dems. Woe is us.

You have stated the driving force these deviants possess for adopting kids. Elton and his partner are the worst type of sexual predators. The whole “gay” community once openly supported NAMBLA and Nambla was routinely welcomed to “gay” pride parades. They have now gone underground because of the public backlash, but, make no mistake, male homosexual predation on young boys is very much a part of the “gay” lifestyle.

"We are fast becoming Afghanistan, where every man has his own boy". So are you saying that we're fighting in Afghanistan for drug lords and pedophiles? Makes you wonder why we still have our troops on the ground there.

That will be completely impossible considering who will be raising that poor child. That has to be one of the most ridiculous statements i’ve heard in a long time.
