'Gay couple recount foster care, adoption controversy 30 years later' & other Wed midday news briefs

Regrets Linger 30 Years After Gay Couple Had Their Foster Children Taken Away - Wonderful story (in spite of the title) about gays being foster parents and adopting children 30 years ago. It shows that people can change their ignorant behavior. And I have to commend one of the former antagonists in this situation. He could have easily said his feels about gays adopting and fostering children was once his "deeply held beliefs." Instead, however, he calls it for what it was - bigotry. 

Pat Buchanan doubles down on 1983 column claiming AIDS is nature's punishment - So Pat Buchanan isn't happy that gays can now marry. The "bitch" in me is very happy that he lived to see this day because, as this post notes, a column he wrote about gays during the beginning of the AIDS crisis is still cited today by the lgbt community as an example of how nasty and callous people were to us back. It's not pretty.

I know the intent of the chart is to show the various families, and the majority of families have children, but where are the couples without children? You don't have to be a parent to have a family.
