An English professor at California State University-Northridge, who was raised by two lesbian mothers, claims that the federal government could be liable for paying "reparations" to thousands of children raised by same-sex parents due to the emotional damage suffered from being deprived of opposite-sex parents.
Professor Robert Oscar Lopez, who is openly bisexual and also married, wrote in an op-ed for the American Thinker that somewhere between 100,000 and 500,000 children could be placed in homes with same-sex parents in the next 15 years as a result of state and federal governments' growing acceptance of same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting.
"Whatever the numbers of kids being raised in gay homes might be right now, with the rise of gay marriage, there was a rise in kids being raised by gay couples," Lopez wrote. "Those responsible for gay marriage will be responsible for thousands upon thousands of individual children who would not have been raised by same-sex couples were it not for actions taken by the government." more >>

A South Los Angeles man has been hailed a hero for building a portable home for a homeless grandmother in his neighborhood. The random act of kindness has inspired a new campaign to help other homeless people, particularly children and U.S. military veterans, and donations are pouring in.

The 60-year-old widow, who has been homeless for 10 years since losing her late husband and her home, used to sleep in the dirt on Summers' street. She would stop by his apartment near 30th and Van Buren every other day to collect recyclables, which is how they formed a friendship. more >>
