Speaking at the Faith and Freedom conference yesterday, Renewing American Leadership chairman Jim Garlow compared same-sex couple adoption to children losing their parents on 9/11:

GARLOW: Our President gave a speech a few days ago in which he said, ‘the tragedy of 9/11 was that it robbed so many children of having a mommy or a daddy. Well, you know something Mr. President, your failure to defend marriage and to redefine marriage means that everybody who is under that redefined marriage will lack either a mommy or a daddy and that is morally wrong.
