I don’t think they thought this through.

The tweet below is why I’m writing this post, I also clicked the link below the tweet, a clip of that post is shown below the tweet.

I’m sure you all know what caught my interest – “legal fiction”…

And, I’m guessing Catholic Charities Adoption Services will be trying to figure out how to spin the fact that if same-sex marriage is a legal marriage, but only because of a legal fiction; then how how will they spin adoptive parents adopting a child and becoming as if they were the natural parents, plus the child’s new adoption birth certificate that was also created by a legal fiction stating that your adoptive parents created and gave birth to you…

    This is a hard one for me because I’m a big proponent of separation of church and state so it’s not my business what their belief system is or what they believe about gay marriage etc. But yes they stepped in it for trying to blast politics/religion out in the open where it’s open to get scrutinized

      It’s very petty, for sure.

    So they think it’s wise for their argument to bring up legal fiction and natural law, and then throw adoption in there too?

      I threw legal fiction in adoption. The only way you can switch out our parents by birth on our birth certificates and replace with our adoptive parents is through the act of legal fiction.

        It was very eye catching for sure. Interested to see how the arguement plays out. Gave me yet another opportunity to bring “it” up though, the important part to me. Even tho it puts my beliefs into the middle of the legal fiction arguement lol

          I guess not in the middle. The amended birth certificate and the marriage certificate do not sit side by side. Similarities in theory, but completely different certificates, my husband’s name did not replace my father’s name on my record of birth when i got married. When I was widowed and remarried, it was proven and noted on my next marrige certificate that I was widowed. As an adult, I had every say about what is on my marriage certificates.
