Conservatives 1 - Liberals 0: How Tennesseans Reversed A RIDICULOUS New Policy

Not long after the Supreme Court redefined marriage, Tennessee's Office of the Courts decided to replace the words “Mother” and “Father” with “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.”

Few were notified of the change, let alone given the chance to weigh in.  But after Fox News columnist Todd Starnes wrote a column it about it on Tuesday, readers were inflamed. 

Starnes said, "That decision infuriated thousands of readers -- including one mother who said she did not endure ten hours of labor to be called 'Parent 1.’”

Kendra Armstrong, the Memphis resident who first alerted Starnes to the injustice asked, “Why are heterosexual parents having their rights violated? So now it’s improper and inappropriate in a court of law to refer to a parent as a mother and a father?"

Armstrong, a family law attorney, went on to say, “It’s absolutely ludicrous to make the term mother and father obsolete.  Quite frankly, the terms ‘Parent 1’ and ‘Parent 2’ seem more offensive than mother and father.  It’s implying that one parent is the first parent and the other parent is secondary.”

After readers heard the news, the Tennessee Court got an earful and quickly reversed the decision, releasing this statement:  "After receiving feedback regarding a recent change made to the permanent parenting plan form, the AOC has reviewed the procedures and determined that, before making any changes to the form, the AOC should consult with the Domestic Relations Committee of the Tennessee Judicial Conference.  We have reverted to the previous form and the Committee has been notified."

Starnes wrote an article immediately after to alert his readers of their power. 

That's what we like to hear!  The moral here is that when we band together, we can do great things!  But one of the important things in this particular instance was being notified.  So many of these slippery changes go on unnoticed, that unless someone like Armstrong and Starnes (or you and me!) take the time to get the word out, nothing can be done!  So thank you to each of you who is working hard to stand up for justice!  We have power!
