Selfish, immature, spoilt, self-obsessed and egotistical – I give you Sir Elton John who, along with his partner David Furnish have obtained a Christmas baby as their latest toy. This child is a replacement object of affection for a deceased close friend, apparently, according to this prissy, egomaniacal pop star. They are, reportedly, “overwhelmed with happiness and joy at this very special moment”. Quite. It is a sad reflection of our modern world that this situation is seen by some as a cause for celebration. It’s not. It is the use of a child as a commodity to satisfy the selfish whims and desires of two people who could not possibly be natural parents, either by dint of sexual orientation or, in normal male-female reproduction, age. It is a sad and immoral state of afairs; and to try to justify the situation, as many have been doing, by stating that because some heterosexuals are bad parents then this is a good thing is misleading and just plain silly.
