A Trio of Bald Eagles, Included Two Dads, Is Successfully Raising Three Eaglets


How many times have conservative Christians complained about a child being raised by same-sex couples? How many times have they freaked out about the possibility of adoption by more than two parents? It’s unnatural! It’s bad for the child! WHAT WOULD JESUS THINK?!

Well, they’re going to hate this story about baby eaglets at the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife Refuge in Illinois being taken care of by three parents… and then, after the mother (Hope) died, by two male bald eagles (Valor I and Valor II) who appear to be parenting together for the sake of the kids.

What’s weird is that bald eagles usually move on to a new mate when they lose their current one, so the expectation would’ve been for these two male eagles to find new partners immediately. And yet they stayed together to take care of their eaglets. Having that “extra” parent has been a boost for them.

Now there’s a new female eagle in the sanctuary and all three are bonding well.

It’s the Christian Right’s worst nightmare.


  1. I’m expecting Trump to tweet venomously about this soon.

    • Hello Single Dad. Yes I think the shit storm from the evangelicals and that ilk to hit the fan very soon. How dare these eagles puch their evil lifestyle on to their innocent pious kids! How dare these degenerates show our kids compassion and kindness doing a loving act! Oh the hateful lord save us. 😁😀😂🤣 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️Hugs
