MARE makes it really easy for adults to "shop" for a child. Check out their photo listing page. They also hold "adoption parties" where children are herded into cattle-call viewing sessions for a closer look. (Do the people at MARE or Family Pride care how this experience affects these children?) Since 1981, MARE has been running "Wednesday's Child" segments on CBS4 (Boston). The Mass. Department of Social Services (DSS) is also part of the GLBT adoption network, and recently gave a "Parents of the Year" award to a male couple in Newton. And MARE receives taxpayer dollars through DSS.
We've known for some time that this stuff was happening under the radar, that homosexual couples were being given preference. But now they're brazenly admitting it. GLBT groups are shameless in their use of their children (adopted, or biological of one parent) as weapons in their war on traditional values.
The head of the group manufacturing this award (just to get more press time), Family Pride, is Jennifer Chrisler, who claims to "married" to former State Senator and former head of the Human Rights Campaign, Cheryl Jacques. They have twin fatherless boys. Chrisler was in the news last week, pushing a plan for making GLBT parents more visible in their children's schools. Family Pride is the group that was behind the huge "GLBT families" invasion of the White House Easter Egg Roll.
Noting all the connections in just this one story shows how well coordinated the GLBT propaganda and control efforts are in American society.Family Pride to honor Mass. adoption resource agency:
(from Bay Windows, Sept. 14, 2006)
The Family Pride Coalition will present the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE), a non-profit agency that provides resources and information to prospective parents on foster care adoption, with its Family Tree Award for MARE’s work in encouraging gay and lesbian couples and singles to become adoptive parents. MARE will be honored at a Sept. 16 reception for local members of Family Pride at the Newton home of board member Jonathan Shapiro and Luke Schemmel.
Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Pride, said MARE, known to most Bay Staters for its weekly “Wednesday’s Child” feature on CBS4, has done extensive outreach to the LGBT community, including educating potential parents about foster care adoption at Family Pride’s Provincetown Family Week last July and August and doing outreach at this summer’s Boston Pride [what a family friendly event!] .
“They’re aggressively recruiting LGBT parents, and we really commend them because the scientific evidence shows that gay parents are equally capable as heterosexual parents and that a person’s sexual orientation has no bearing on their ability to parent,” said Chrisler.
... in the past year [MARE] has stepped up its efforts to be inclusive of LGBT families. In addition to the outreach at Family Week and Boston Pride ... MARE has made sure that its materials include images of LGBT families to send the message that MARE welcomes LGBT parents.
