"Alexandria, Virginia – August 5, 2005 – Following reports that the New York Times has initiated an investigation into U.S. Supreme Court nominee John Roberts’ adoptions of his children, the National Council For Adoption (NCFA) has issued the following statement:
“NCFA denounces, in the strongest possible terms, the shocking decision of the New York Times to investigate the adoption records of Justice John Roberts’ two young children. The adoption community is outraged that, for obviously political reasons, the Times has targeted the very private circumstances, motivations, and processes by which the Roberts became parents.
"The adoption histories of four- and five-year-old children have no bearing whatsoever on the suitability of Justice Roberts to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court – or in any other position, for that matter. Rather, this abject invasion of privacy shows a shameful disregard for the integrity of the family in general and the adoptive family in particular.
"The strength of adoption is in its ability to transcend all politics and ideology in pursuit of its goal: to find permanent, loving families for children in need. Surely decent people on both sides of the aisle will unite to decry this gratuitous and tasteless action.” (The National Council For Adoption)

Not only is one's religion to be examined, but the adoption records of one's young children are to be investigated, by the loving liberals of the Democrat party.
