Ok, calling this ruling a ‘conscience clause’ is ridiculous. This adoption clause is a thinly disguised rule to stop adoption by gay couples, and further stigmatize gay children.
Catholic Charities would rather leave a child in foster care for life, rather than place them in a loving home? Is that Christian?
The concience clause should require all agencies to do better background checks, and home studies. Too many children are placed into abusive homes.
Wake up legislators. I would rather have a loving gay family, than an abusive one.
