11-year-old girl fires back at ‘One Million Moms’ for insulting her gay dads

11-year-old girl fires back at ‘One Million Moms’ for insulting her gay dads

A Maryland family consisting of two gay dads and four adopted black children are shaming the conservative hate group One Million Moms, who recently attacked the “sinful nature” of the parents on their website.

One Million Moms has called for a boycott of “American Girl” magazine, which recently published an article about husbands Rob and Reece Scheer and their children, who they adopted from foster care.

The group wrote:

“Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature. American Girl doesn’t highlight other sins in their magazine.”

“These were moms!” Rob Scheer told WTTG on Monday. “These were moms that were saying that my family was wrong, that the love that my husband and I are giving our four kids and what we’re doing was wrong. I would expect moms not to say these type of things about our family.”

He also pointed out that “these are a ‘million moms,’ they could really be helping the 364,000 kids in foster care. This is our family and it works for us. And you know what? We have four amazing kids that we adopted out of foster care. These are four kids that have fulfilled our life more than we ever thought.”

He has a special message for One Million Moms, too: “To the Million Moms, I say to them: ‘You know what? Go to your local foster care agency, those kids could really use your help and not worry about the Sheer family.’”

Their eleven-year-old daughter Amaya Sheer has a message for One Million Moms as well:

“This is none of your business.”
