This Lesbian’s Daughter Has Had Enough

Oct 20, 2014 by

By Rivka Edelman, American Thinker: My name is Rivka Edelman, and I am the product of same-sex parenting.

They have clearly not removed the scandal from their city, and from the administration of Mayor Annise Parker. As the mayor’s own comments make abundantly clear, she stands at the center of the scandal. When news broke earlier this week that the attorneys working for the City of Houston had issued...
