Texas Judge Prohibits Gay Father From Leaving His Children With Husband
Earlier this summer, William Flowers, a gay man married to his partner Jim Evans, filed for custody of his three children, who had been living with his ex-wife.
A jury ultimately denied his request, but allowed for regular visitations.
Then — in what legal experts are describing as unprecedented — Judge Charley E. Prine, Jr. “issued a ruling which included an injunction applicable only to William.
It prohibits him from leaving his children alone with any male to whom the kids are not related by ‘blood or adoption,’” like his husband Jim. “So if, for example, William wants to visit his mother in the hospital (where she’s been for several weeks), he can’t leave his kids at home with his husband.
As written, the injunction also prohibits male doctors, teachers and pastors from being alone with the children,”
“Is it possible that Judge Prine believes that the children’s step-father or another gay man is more likely than a heterosexual to molest the kids or turn them into brainwashed zombie drag queens? Because the case is still pending and citing the Texas Code of Judicial Conduct, Judge Prine declined to comment.”
