A Tennessee couple with nine adopted kids is speaking out against a bill being considered in the legislature that would allow adoption agencies to deny same-sex couples based on religious beliefs.
The bill passed the House last week and is currently up for consideration in the Senate.
Said Robert Rutledge Williams of his large family: “The person that is choosing to write this bill, let it go on, please contact me and feel free to babysit any day of the week, because I don’t know exactly how many children they have, but I’m sure their numbers aren’t up to nine, and if they can do this any better than I can, go for it.”
Despite being outnumbered by his children, the Williams say loving these children is easy part. It’s convincing some people that two dads are better than none.
