Mistake to cut funds for Catholic Charities

Success - Article sent! close

Catholic Charities has been criticized as being "cold" in Fence Post letters for saying that they would not place children in homes with gay parents due to their religious beliefs. The idea seems to be that due to their religious beliefs Catholic Charities is hurting children by denying them a loving home.

Of course the reason that religious charities such as Catholic Charities were given state funds in the first place is because they do a good job of finding homes for children. A better job, in general, than state agencies for a cheaper price, which was a win-win for the state, children and taxpayers.

Pro-homosexual supporters, however, have decided that since religious organizations like Catholic Charities do not agree with their beliefs on homosexuality that they will use the civil union and religious freedom law to cut them off from state funding. The idea seems to be that if you do not agree with their homosexual social beliefs they are willing to hurt children by denying them a loving home.
