Commenter: Stop Hypocrisy Now

So does a (perceived) SIN prevent you from adopting now?

If we are going to base adoption on where someone is a sinner or not - then my question to the agencies do you prevent divorced/remarried person from adopting?  If not then why is it okay for an Adulterer  living in an Adulterous relationship able to adopt if this goes against your religious belief to be and Adulterer?


Can the agencies deny anyone that does not meet there "religious" standards deny adoption?  So if a Jew and a Christian marry and want to adopt would these same organization deny adoption because one is a Jew?


The last question do these organizations receive public money?  Does the law of the state prevent discrimination?  If the answer to these are both yes - then you must side with the law, if the first question is No then these organizations can do as they please as they are private.

Thank You
