State Of Alabama Declares That Adoption Agencies Do NOT Have To Adopt Kids To Homosexuals

While much of the Western world and America is drowning in filth and perversity, there are still pockets of Christians who try as they can to do what is right.

One such case recently happened in the state of Alabama, where the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to protect adoption agencies from being forced to adopt children to homosexuals, saying the law was made to ensure that agencies would not have to violate their religious convictions:

The Alabama House of Representatives voted 60-14 in favor of protecting adoption agencies from government discrimination last week.

The bill the House advanced is the Alabama Child Placing Agency Inclusion Act, sponsored by Rep. Rich Wingo, R-62.

It would “prohibit the state from discriminating against child placing agencies on the basis that the provider declines to provide a child placement that conflicts with the religious beliefs of the provider.”

The bill would also prohibit the state from denying a license or license renewal to an agency that refuses to “carry out an activity” against its religion.

“Religious organizations, in particular, have a lengthy and distinguished history of providing child placing services that predate government involvement,” the Act explains. “This act seeks to ensure that people of any faith, or no faith at all, are free to serve children and families who are in need in ways consistent with the communities that first inspired their service. … Child placing agencies, both individuals and organizations, have the inherent, fundamental, and inalienable right to free exercise of religion protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”

The Act also cites Alabama’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which prohibits “the government from burdening the freedom of religion of a person unless the burden is in furtherance of 14 compelling governmental interest and is done in the least restrictive means.”
RFRA laws have angered LGBT and abortion advocates across the country. RFRA was at the core of the Little Sisters of the Poor case. The Obama administration tried to force the pro-life nuns to cooperate in the provision of contraception and life-ending drugs.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch has repeatedly explained RFRA and his rulings invoking it during his confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week.
“There is no compelling reason to require a child placing agency to violate its sincerely held religious beliefs in providing any service, since alternative access to 10 the services is equally available,” says the Act. “Ensuring that religious organizations can continue to provide child placing services will benefit the children and families that receive those services.”

Openly gay Rep. Patricia Todd, D-54, is strongly opposed to the bill. She said it’s “a direct attack against my community” and that it suggests she is “not qualified to be a fit parent … based on the fact that I love a woman.”

Roughly 30 percent of Alabama’s adoption agencies are religious. Wingo pointed out that if they were forced to shut down, it “would create a burden on the state that impacts the children.” (source)

    This is a VERY important precedent. The same principle applies to being forced to marry 2 people, to bake a “wedding” cake, and to teach things about homosexuality that violate one’s conscience. It is important to be kind to them, not cruel, but this does not need to be approval of that conduct. If we as Christians can refrain from nastiness toward them, and be civil and as courteous as we can, we could reach many more for Christ.

    The author of the GREAT book, The Secret Life of an Unlikely Convert, was a Lesbian activist, but kindness of Christians won her to Christ and she became a happily married Christian heterosexual with children. She now counters those who say LG’s can’t change, because Christ can do ANYTHING! The book gives great information on the type of witness that can reach them;
    Luke 10:2 “These were His instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields.
