Tony Perkins (Hate Group Hot Head)- Religious Freedom

"The so-called Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act has already done more harm to religious freedom than good. The Roman Catholic diocese in Rockford has announced that it will close its doors on the church's adoption program before subjecting children to placement in homosexual homes. Like it did in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., the Catholic Church refused to violate its convictions. Unfortunately, it's only a matter of time before other dioceses follow suit. For the church, this is an act of self-defense. Without a religious exemption, the law makes programs like this one vulnerable to lawsuits or state budget cuts. Much to the frustration of the bill's own sponsor, the state refused to carve out special protections for the religious organizations like this one. And now the state's neediest children will be paying for it." - Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.

The Catholic church is free to run their adoption program any way they want as long as they do not take public funds. Of course, you may be short of cash after all the lawyer fees and settlements paid out for abusing kids. Maybe it's a good thing the church gets out of any business that has to do with kids.

Interesting that when I want the SAME rights to be free from discrimination, you call it special rights when they are not. Now you want SPECIAL rights so you can discriminate.

The sad part is not only are children suffering, but as far as I know, no other group has stepped up to take over where the Catholic church has dropped the ball.
