Praise for Tassie
www.starobserver.com.au www.starobserver.com.au
One of the things I learned during last year’s same-sex adoption debate in the NSW Parliament is the overwhelming effect that personal stories had on the opinions of our decision-makers. That is why it’s so important that we continue to write and meet with our local MPs and discuss why marriage equality is important to us and encourage our friends and family to do the same.

Russia: ‘Dima Yakovlev’ Bill in no one’s best interests
www.amnesty.org www.amnesty.org
Russian parliamentarians must reject a bill that will have a chilling effect on human rights defenders and civil society when it goes through its third reading in the Russian Parliament's Lower Chamber - the Duma - on 21 December 2012, Amnesty International said today. The so-called "Dima Yakovlev bill" introduces, among other things, further severe restrictions on non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and bans the adoption of Russian children by US citizens. The bill allows the Ministry of Justice to arbitrarily stop activities and freeze the assets of NGOs that they consider to be involved in political activities, receive funding from US citizens or organizations or conduct activities threatening the interests of the Russian Federation. It also bans persons, who are US and Russian dual nationals from being a leader or a member of Russian, international or foreign NGO participating in ‘political activities’ in Russia. Organizations, or their branches which violate this rule could be closed and its property seized.

Parenting

Real dads don’t tell their children what to believe. They teach their children how to believe.
www.danoah.com www.danoah.com
To say that my parents are devout in their religion is probably an understatement. I have no doubt, that my parents believe so strongly in their religion that they would follow those beliefs to the grave. It was under such beliefs that I was raised. There were rules and guidelines for everything their church asked them to live by, and my parents kept and abided by all of them, nearly to perfection.

Adopt, but don't turn Ming into a Kylie
www.smh.com.au www.smh.com.au
The NSW adoption act prohibits a court from approving a change in a child's given name if the child is more than one year old, or a non-citizen, "unless there are special reasons, related to the best interests of the child".
