The natural and traditional family...

28/04/2008

This story is making the news since yesterday:

"Three children freed from a cellar in which their mother had been imprisoned and raped by her own father for 24 years had never seen daylight, police in Austria have confirmed.
Police spokesman Franz Polzer told CNN that 73-year-old Josef Fritzl admitted holding his daughter, Elisabeth Fritzl, 42, hostage in the windowless cell and fathering seven children by her. "The mother had memories [of the outside world] and got used to the situation," Polzer told a press conference Monday afternoon. "The others knew nothing else." The main question reverberating from the small Austrian town: how could a man keep his daughter locked in his basement for 24 years, where she gave birth to seven of his children while her mother and three of those children lived upstairs without an inkling of the horrors in the cellar?"


Remember those people at Action Famille and their statement that the natural and traditional family is the best place for a child to develop harmoniously? Yeah, I can totally see that.

What a horrible story. And they call us "freaks!" I was just alerted by a friend to a dutch study which shows gay/lesbian parents are just as good a raising well adjusted human beings as straight couples (a-hem, I think "better!") http://www.gay.com/news/article.html?2007/09/21/1
