Gay Connecticut couple accused
of raping adopted children
will face trial

New York Daily News, by Erik Ortiz

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 4/8/2013 8:52:23 AM

The case of a same-sex Connecticut couple accused of repeatedly raping and abusing two of their nine adopted boys is headed for trial. Married couple George Harasz and Douglas Wirth of Glastonbury were supposed to be sentenced Friday in Hartford Superior Court under a plea deal, but instead withdrew from their agreement with prosecutors. The men had already pleaded no contest in January to one felony count each of risk of injury to a minor — a reduction from even more serious charges related to sexual assault....

"Injury to a minor"

Libs put such harmless sounding names on the most vile, heinous crimes...

It´s because they simply don´t care.

What is so "Gay" about the brutal rape of children?
Liberals are more concerned about furthering the spread of homosexualism than in curbing forceful rape of children by homos.

The real outrage is that these two pieces of debris were allowed to adopt nine, yes nine, children while heterosexual couples are routinely denied the ability to adopt. The social service workers who enabled these two poedophiles would in a just society also be held to account, but unfortunately we live in a corrupt society where liberal ne´er-do-wells are always let off the hook.

This guys need to do a rope a dope and let the SCOTUS get them off the hook. The SCOTUS will rule that homosexuals have a right to marry. And shortly after that polygamy and incest will be recognized. Then these characters can claim it was rape but incest and polygamy. We as a society have devolved from what is right to what is legal as our moral standard. One remembers another fascist society (as Obambi and the Dems are taking us) that used legal instead of what is right as the moral standard and the results were dead camps.

This report must be in error. Surely our exalted and all-knowing Government would never hand over minor children to a pair of homosexuals, would they?

Sarcasm aside, this Nation´s Government, top to bottom, Republican and Democrat, is seriously insane, and I don´t think therapy will help.

Note that these guys were about to get off with no jail time and without having to register as sex offenders until another kid came forward with credible accusations. The case has been in the courts for more than one year and the media has been doing a great job of hiding it.

It´s not just the gays who should not have access to children. I was once walking my dog and fell behind two lesbians. one of whom had a young boy with her from a previous relationship. The butchy one was berating the other woman calling her vile names, the least of which was "bisexual." This woman and her little boy listened in silence and in obvious fear.

Carlos Harasz added that the state Department of Children and Families “took the word of an angry, damaged, disturbed boy and destroyed a family.”

Actually, it took the word of five angry, damaged, and disturbed boys. The definition of family is also being destroyed, along with marriage.

In 2000 I was on a jury where a man was accused of doing much the same to a couple of twin boys that he had "taken in" so to speak. It was absolutely gut wrenching.

Twelve years ago, homosexuality wasn´t so fashionable. Today, it seems to give people some kind of badge of authority that they can hide behind. I have friends trying to become foster parents. They have already raised two kids of their own! I cannot imagine them being allowed to adopt or foster nine more, even though they are quite capable of doing so.

This should help the ´gay cause´ in Connecticut. Maybe if they had more gun control in Connecticut this wouldn´t have happened.

This is always laying there and maybe more frequent but will never be reported because gays are a special class of victims.

I seriously doubt these two cretins had the financial resources to support nine children. So why did the social services people allow them to adopt so many? Because they wanted to prove "gay" families are good families? What´s good about condeming an adopted child to a life of food stamps and welfare? "gay" or straight. Surely there were other hetero couples who are still waiting for the chance to adopt just one child, but they don´t count to the gay activits in social services!

When you take in a foster child you also get a monthly check to take care of that child. There are a few foster parents out there who take in foster children for the money.

KIEV, Ukraine — Russian forces expanded their control of the Crimea region Monday and gave the Ukrainian military an ultimatum, as the Ukrainian prime minister called for Western political and economic support and the Russian and Ukrainian currencies fell in tandem. The Russian forces, already in control of much of Crimea, took possession of a ferry terminal in Kerch, in the eastern part of the peninsula just across a strait from Russian territory, according to reports from the area. The terminal serves as a departure point for many ships heading to Russia and could be used to send even more Russian

Cairo- Egypt’s military has become the butt of international scientific ridicule after an army officer announced it had discovered “miraculous” devices to detect and cure Aids and Hepatitis C. The claims have been dismissed by experts around the world and labelled a “scientific scandal” by the Egyptian President’s own scientific adviser. The backlash in the media and the opprobrium of the world’s scientific community may even hit the popularity of Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, the armed forces chief expected to announce his candidacy for presidential elections likely to take place in April in the

A few minutes later, Bush elaborated: "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy. We had a very good dialogue.

Kiev - Russian aircraft carrying nearly 2,000 suspected troops have landed at a military air base near the regional capital of the restive Crimean peninsula, a top Ukrainian official said Friday, accusing Moscow of an "armed invasion". "Thirteen Russian aircraft landed at the airport of Gvardeyskoye (near Simferopol) with 150 people in each one," Sergiy Kunitsyn, the Ukrainian president´s special representive in Crimea, told the local ATR television channel, adding the air space had been closed. It was not immediately clear if Russia had the right to use the base or send additional troops there under its agreements with Ukraine.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine — Ukraine accused Russia of a "military invasion and occupation" on Friday, saying Russian troops have taken up positions around a coast guard base and two airports on its strategic Crimean peninsula. Russia kept silent on those accusations but confirmed that armored vehicles from its Black Sea Fleet were moving around Crimea for "security" reasons as the crisis deepened between two of Europe´s largest countries. Any Russian military incursion in Crimea would dramatically raise the stakes in Ukraine´s conflict, which saw pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych flee last weekend after three months of anti-government protests.

As a gay conservative woman, I supported Arizona’s religious freedom bill, which was just vetoed this week by Gov. Jan Brewer. I supported it because it embodied the values every American civil rights movement stood for: the freedom to live our lives without being punished for who we are. In this case, it was a bill making sure people of faith would not be forced to violate their religious beliefs in the event someone demanded they do so. This bill, like others across the country, was thought necessary because of the emergence of business, large and small, being attacked by the

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he
