Now that D.C. recognizes same-sex marriages, Catholic Charities (which is paid $20 million/year by the city to perform “charity” work) is throwing a tantrum about having to treat homosexuals as human beings with rights. They’re ending their contract with the city for their adoption program.
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington closed its 80-year-old foster care and public adoption program in the District of Columbia so the agency would not have to violate church teaching by licensing same-sex couples as foster or adoptive parents.
…Under a new law allowing same-sex marriage in the District of Columbia, Catholic Charities would have been required to place children with same-sex parents for foster care and adoption, which would violate church teaching that marriage is a permanent union between one man and one woman.
Naturally they’re playing this up as D.C.’s decision on their website:
The D.C. Government informed Catholic Charities that the agency would be ineligible to serve as a foster care provider due to the impending D.C. same sex marriage law.
Nice try. Take your “charity” work elsewhere.
