Proposed Law: Ma and Pa Rather Than Parents

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
Justice Minister Avi Nissenkorn pushed through reforms recently, ordering all forms filled out for children to now bear two lines detailed as "Parent 1" and "Parent 2". This opens the door for homosexual relationships and makes life just a little bit easier for same sex parents. 
Obviously this upset the Haredi parties, as they do not want to give an inch on such matters, as promoting such a lifestyle is against Torah values, and making it easier for them in any way can be seen as promoting the lifestyle.
To that end, MK Moshe Gafni (UTJ) has proposed a law that would require government offices to keep the original "Father" and "Mother" lines on all forms.
Gafni says that changing the forms to say "parent 1 and "parent 2" is against the values of the State of Israel as a Jewish state.source: Hamechadesh
to me it is just semantics
