This Discrimination Against Christian Parents Will Make You Furious

Time and again, we are bombarded by the left’s cries of discrimination and their appeal for “inclusivity.”

Of course, this means that they want special rights for those who adopt alternative lifestyles – while labeling Christians as discriminatory for not agreeing.

Now, one government is under fire for discriminating against Christian families who want to be loving parents.

Canada was the first North American country to legalize same-sex marriage in 2005, and their government pushes the LGBT agenda at every turn.

And because they want to align with the progressive agenda, they are persecuting Christian families for their beliefs.

Early last year, a couple in Ontario completed the province’s required training to become foster parents.

When it came time for their scheduled interview with Child Services, the couple – who wish to remain anonymous – were asked strange questions about their faith…questions that would never be tolerated if asked of someone with a different religious background.

The social worker asked if the couple’s church “still believes in some of the more outdated parts of the Bible,” reports the Christian Post.

They answered that they believed in everything taught in the Bible, to which the social worker stated that her son was gay and that she had been told that Christians believe homosexuality is a sin.

She received a completely appropriate response from the couple.

They stated that they would provide unconditional love and support for any child that entered their family, no matter their sexuality, because everyone created by God deserves love and respect.

They heard nothing about their application to foster for six months.

Then a letter suddenly appeared last fall stating that their application had been denied.  It read, in part:

“We feel that the policies of our agency do not appear to fit with your values and beliefs and therefore, we will be unable to move forward with an approval for your family as a resources home,” according to LifeSite News.

The couple called for an explanation, again stating that their Christian beliefs meant that they would love and accept – not judge – any child in their care.

The social worker provided no further comment nor options for the couple to re-apply or be interviewed by someone else.

The couple is fighting against this obvious Christian persecution with the help of Canada’s Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms who says the rejection of their request to foster was based on nothing but “prejudice and bias against the religious beliefs of the couple.”

The Justice Centre was founded in 2010 as a way to help Canadian families defend their constitutional freedoms, of which one is freedom of religion.

They also request that the couple’s application be reconsidered – this time in a non-discriminatory manner.

The Centre’s president responded that thousands of children are in need of a loving home and are being prevented from that dream due to “ideological bias” against applicants.

Last year, the Justice Centre fought in a similar case in which a couple in Alberta said they did not believe in same-sex marriage during their interview.

Like the couple in Ontario, they too were denied the ability to foster or adopt children because of their views – told their beliefs were “incompatible with adoption,” according to the Christian Post.

In both cases, the couples explicitly stated they would provide unconditional love and support for any child in their care, but were refused any recourse.

A spokeswoman with the Children’s Service Ministry released a statement that read, “The adoption application process is rigorous to protect the children we serve and the families choosing to care for them. An adoptive family’s strengths, abilities and desires are carefully evaluated to determine what might be a best match or fit for that particular family and the waiting child.”

It appears that having traditional values is a major strike against couples wanting to adopt in Canada.

In the Alberta couple’s case, at least, the Justice Centre was victorious in having the original ban against the couple’s application reversed.

While its president says the couple is “thrilled” with that decision, major concerns remain about government discrimination against Christian families.

More and more nations are caving to socialist progressive agendas that provide special rights for homosexuals and transgenders while trampling on the rights of those who still hold traditional beliefs.

The double-standard continues in countless other nations, and progressive propaganda has overtaken the U.S., which will likely result in anti-Christian discrimination and persecution increasing.

What do you think of the absurd claims by Canadian Child Services departments that traditional beliefs are “incompatible with adoption?”
