Elton John says its ‘heartbreaking’ that son will grow up without a mom

July 19, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Elton John said in an interview this week that it will be “heartbreaking” for his son to grow up without a mom.

Elton and his homosexual partner David Furnish got ‘married’ in 2005, and, after trying unsuccessfully to adopt a child in Ukraine, arranged for a boy child, Zachary, to be born to a surrogate mother in 2010.

John admitted to Matt Lauer on NBC Today, “It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy.”

John said he is also worried about when Zachary goes to preschool and other children ask him why he doesn’t have a mom. He said that he and Furnish would like to have another child so Zachary doesn’t have go through it alone.

Gwen Landolt of REAL Women of Canada told LifeSiteNews: “If he’s concerned about it then why on earth is he adopting the child knowing the child is going to have a difficult life with much more complications than a child” with heterosexual parents?

Interestingly when similar observations to John’s are made by non-homosexuals they are often met by overt hostility. 

Earlier this year a 14-year-old girl received death threats after she told Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, “I really feel bad for the kids who have two parents of the same gender. Even though some kids think it’s fine, they have no idea what kind of wonderful experiences they miss out on.” She spoke to the Committee asking them to vote ‘no’ to a gay marriage proposal.

Several studies on homosexual parenting have concluded that there are no ill effects to a child with homosexual parents. However, according to a report published in 2005 by HazteOir, Spanish Forum for the Family, and the Institute for Family Policy, most of these studies have been done by homosexual activists, using small selective populations and reports from parents instead of children.

The report, entitled “Report on Infantile Development in Same-Sex Couples”, contradicts the other studies. It says that among children raised by same-sex couples there are significant increases in low self-esteem, stress, sexual identity confusion, an increase in mental illness, drug use, promiscuity, STD’s, and homosexual behaviour.

A new study on homosexual parenting, by University of Texas professor Mark Regnerus, was published this month in Social Science Research. It has been hailed as a ‘gold standard’ study because of its use of a large, random sample with responses from children instead of parents. Areas Regnerus examined include rates of employment, voting, suicide, fidelity in relationships, and sexual abuse. The study’s findings show that children with heterosexual parents fare better, in a number of areas than those with homosexual parents.

For the findings of his research Regenerus has been subject to complaints by homosexual activists and is now under investigation by the University of Texas.

Landolt says parenting by homosexual couples is “looking to the so-called rights of the adult not the best interests of the child. A child needs a mother and a father and that’s the only way they can learn about the gender differences in which the whole world functions.”

He said that he and Furnish would like to have another child so Zachary doesn’t have go through it alone.

Let's compound the problem by introducing another, "motherless" child to commiserate with the first one. This is total selfishness!

Imagine what he'll think about some of the other activities going on around there, Frootloop.

Every once in awhile he has a moment of clarity, he knows deep down his lifestyle is wrong.

It is not just selfish; it is EVIL. The fact that almost half the country wants to see gay marriage and gay parenting like this—and hate a business like Chick-fil-A for disapproving of it—is proof to me that we have reached a point of no return.

John’s got enough money to have a pair of breasts grafted onto his back. He could be both Sir and Lady Elton.

It’s heartbreaking that two Godless deviants are perverting a human being in full sight of us all. Says a lot about EVERYONE.

“It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy.”

This explains why he was at Rush's wedding. I think Rush is working on him. Don't be surprised if sometime in the near future Elton runs away from this sinful lifestyle and finds himself a good woman to be the child's mother.

So, little Zackery does have a "mum".

Drop the queer butt buddy and marry the lady, IF you REALLY care for your little Zackery.

Selfish pr**k.

I have no idea what this statement means. I am very much against homosexual adoption, marriage, and anything else that attempts to normalize and/or spread the behavior, and I vote accordingly whenever I have the chance.

Are you suggesting that we band together and steal the kid away from Elton John...or...what?

Elton John has always struck me as a basically decent guy whose perversion gets the better of him.

What I wish he would do is make the real mother a part of this kid’s life, if she was willing.

It’s not remotely the perfect solution, but it’s all there is.

Are you a male or female. Just curious

Yep, I called it before reading to this sentence. Of course, it's because UT Austin is the most liberal treehugging nekkid hippy greenie blight on the Lone Star State. They'll investigate this professor but don't bat an eye when another of their profs teaches his students that he's for letting ebola loose to kill off 90% of the earth's human population.

He tried, that was what the song “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” was about, he was about to marry a woman, even though he knew it wouldn’t work, and was talked out of it. He actually did marry in the 80s. I think he did make a sincere effort, but it just didn’t work out. He also was addicted to alcohol and drugs for most of that time, which didn’t help matters.

“It’s going to be heartbreaking for him to grow up and realise he hasn’t got a mummy.”

Uhh, don’t look now, but he really won’t have much of a father figure in his life either.

More like being raised by the carnival freak show and the bearded lady.

To state the obvious, the child has a mother: the woman they so disrespectfully call the "surrogate", who is actually his "genetic" AND "obstetric" mother, the woman who conceived him and who gave him birth: in short, his ... the word is mother.

Elton John and his boyfriend David Furniss planned, intended, arranged,and paid for this child to be separated from his mother and to be raised motherless. And they feel so bad about this "heartbreaking" situation that they're going to do it again.

A couple more words to be included in the general purview: sadness, selfishness, sorrow. Also disorder, deviancy, degeneracy, disgust.
