If your brother is the father of your child?

Posted: Oct 14, 2004 12:00 AM

It sounds like one of those Jeff Foxworthy jokes, doesn?t it? ?If directions to your house include what to do after you turn off the dirt road, you might be a redneck.? ?If your grandmother wakes you up in the middle of the night and says ?come look at this before I flush it,? you might be a redneck.?  ?If you introduce someone to your brother and the father of your child and there?s just one guy standing there, you might be a redneck.? You know the bit.

But this article isn?t about a redneck. It?s about Julia Boseman, a North Carolina Democrat running for the State Senate against Republican Woody White.

Boseman, a New Hanover County Commissioner, is a lesbian activist whose political agenda includes support for gay marriage and state benefits for homosexual ?domestic partners.? She promises to be a big spending liberal Democrat, the likes of which North Carolina has never elected to its legislature.

Furthermore, Boseman, whose ?domestic partner? is the coach of UNC-Wilmington?s softball team, has been a controversial figure outside her role as a public servant. Recently, she and her ?domestic partner? had a baby, which was made possible by a sperm donation from her biological brother. When the couple (Boseman and her ?domestic partner,? not her brother) sought to have the baby baptized in a local church, many in the community were outraged.

Readers of this editorial probably wonder why a race for a State Senate seat in North Carolina is the subject of a national column. I have a different question:

Why is the race between Julia Boseman (who, as of this writing, has 17 contributors in her county) and Woody White (with over 650 contributors in his county) even close?

The answer is to be found on the national website www.victoryfund.org. The site includes the following plea to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans-gendered voters nationwide:

?North Carolina is a Victory Legislative Horizon State, meaning that there are currently no openly LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or trans-gendered) officials serving in the State Legislature.  In 2005, the North Carolina State Senate will begin debate on a Constitutional amendment which would define marriage as between ?one man and one woman.? Now is the time that we must elect openly LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-gendered) members to the North Carolina State Senate to protect our rights.?

The national site also includes the following criticism of Boseman?s opponent:

?(Woody) White has taken anti-choice stances and opposes any legislation that would allow gays and lesbians to adopt children and he would oppose any legislation that would allow gays and lesbians the same protections afforded to heterosexual married couples including opposition to any type of domestic partner benefits. He promises to ?resist any efforts by the liberal gay community to pass laws allowing adoption of children, public benefits for same-sex partners, or becoming a special protected class as that term is interpreted by the Courts.??

Finally, the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and trans-gendered lobbyists get to the bottom line:

?Boseman will need to raise in excess of $250,000 to be victorious in November.?

That is why Boseman, the Democrat, has raised more money than White the Republican, despite her paucity of local donations.

All across the country, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and trans-gendered candidates are preparing to launch a radical agenda in geographical areas where their ideas are not those of their constituents. They are influencing local elections by running highly financed national campaigns that depend on big money from donors who do not necessarily live in the state or even the region where ?their candidate? is running.

But these candidates rarely talk about their agenda in public. They usually wait until they are elected to spring their true plan on unsuspecting voters. That is why Boseman?s website currently shows no picture of her together with her ?domestic partner.? That is why her biography makes no mention of her ?domestic partner? or the child they produced with the sperm donated by her brother.

Since the voters of North Carolina do not share their values, the Boseman campaign adopts a two-pronged strategy; First, buy the election with out-of-state contributions from New York and San Francisco. Second, spring the radical LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-gendered) legislative agenda on the voters immediately after assuming office.

Such a strategy can only work if the public is unaware of what is happening. I wrote this article because I want voters to make an informed decision. Regardless of where you live, you need to know if your local candidate is supported by www.victoryfund.org.

I don?t want to challenge Julia Boseman?s right to use her brother?s sperm to ?father? her child.  Nor do I want to challenge her right to be openly gay. I just want her to be open and honest about her real political agenda.

Mike S. Adams called Julia Boseman?s law office for confirmation of all facts in this article. She would not return his calls.
