In the midst of a battle with Sunrise Adoption agency, Kentucky’s oldest adoption agency, and a Baptist organization, the state has proposed new regulations which would essentially disqualify Christians from adopting or fostering children through the state’s programs.
According to the Courier-Journal, “the state is proposing sweeping new regulations for private agencies that accept children who have experienced abuse or neglect that include rules against promoting any particular religion and ensuring a child’s sexual orientation or gender identification is respected.”
“The proposed regulations,” the report continues, “subject to legislative review, include detailed requirements that children not be forced to pray or attend religious services as well as protections for LGBTQ children.”
The regulations would also ban any “programming,” including religious teaching, that would characterize LGBTQ as “immoral, unnatural, unacceptable or invalid” while also requiring access to “gender-affirming medical care by medical and mental health providers.”
The assault on Christianity, the nuclear family, and traditional values in this country couldn’t be any more blatant. Discriminating against adoptive families because they may take their adopted or fostered children to church and teach them wholesome, godly values is not only an affront to this nation, but to God.
