An 11-year-old girl is speaking out after being shamed by One Million (obnoxious) Moms for having two dads. The anti-gay-marriage group started a boycott of American Girl magazine after the publication featured Amaya Scheer, her dads Rob and Reece, and her three brothers, all of whom were adopted out of foster care. In a statement, they wrote:
We must remain diligent and stand up for biblical values and truth. Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature. American Girl doesn’t highlight other sins in their magazine.
How many moms are actually members of One Million Moms? 5? 6? A Baker's Dozen? Amaya and her dads and her little brother Greyson were interviewed on Good Day DC about the controversy, and Amaya had the perfect response:
“This is none of your business.” From the mouths of babes.
Her dads, meanwhile, want to draw attention to the irony that One Million Moms are trying to undermine a family of foster children, saying:
These were moms that were saying that my family was wrong, that the love that my husband and I are giving our four kids and what we’re doing was wrong. I would expect moms not to say these type of things about our family.
But at the same time, these are a ‘million moms,’ they could really be helping the 364,000 kids in foster care. This is our family and it works for us. And you know what? We have four amazing kids that we adopted out of foster care. These are four kids that have fulfilled our life more than we ever thought.
So to the Million Moms, I say to them, ‘You know what? Go to your local foster care agency, those kids could really use your help and not worry about the Sheer family.
