You've got to love blatant ideological agendas. Intractable black illegitimacy has long been embarrassing for many Liberals. They obviously need to fix it, but how? They could fix it by promoting marriage, but that would be too gauche, too bourgeois. Instead, they've fixed it by redefining "parents." Pure genius.
James Taranto has a great response to this kind of nonsense:
"The problem of illegitimacy and broken families had seemed intractable for decades, but the Census Bureau has been able to make a significant dent in it, at virtually no cost to the taxpayer, merely by redefining the word parents. And why stop there? ... Why not redefine together to mean "on the same planet"? So long as at least one man and one woman live on Earth, whether or not they are married or the child's biological parents, every child is being raised by two (or more) parents, and this will remain true at least until we begin colonizing space. Hey, it takes a village!"
