Prominent evangelical adoption and foster care agency will provide services to LGBTQ parents

By Shawna Chen | 1 March 2021

AXIOS — Bethany Christian Services, one of the U.S.’s largest adoption and foster agencies, said Monday it will begin offering services to LGBTQ parents nationwide, effective immediately, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: It’s a major shift for the 77-year-old evangelical organization which has traditionally referred LGBTQ parents to other agencies. The change comes as cities and states increasingly require agencies to work with LGBTQ parents at the risk of losing government contracts.

What they’re saying: “We will now offer services with the love and compassion of Jesus to the many types of families who exist in our world today,” Chris Palusky, the organization’s president and chief executive wrote in an email per NYT. “We’re taking an ‘all hands on deck’ approach where all are welcome.”

  • “It got to a point where it became really untenable to have this patchwork of practices,” Nathan Bult, senior vice president of public and government affairs, told NYT. “Bethany was ready and Christians are ready. […]

  1. Personally, I wouldn’t allow any homosexual or Lesbian adoption at all. We already have too many screwed up kids as it is. Children need a real Mother and Father, not pretenders.

  2. Very sad. Also disgusting of course.

    Previously I quoted this text from a tweet:

    [Conservatives lost every “culture war” they pretended to engage in, and they always end up cheering what they once claimed to oppose, from gays to mass migration. There is no more disgusting element in politics today than the rent-seeking Zio-Homo conservative.]

    It could just as well have said ‘Conservatives and Christians’ — or “Christians” — too often today “Christians” seem to easily abandon what should be deeply held principles and beliefs, here apparently over money (“at the risk of losing government contracts”) — think about it: the pilgrims set sail, not knowing where they would land and what they would find there, or even if they would survive the journey, seeking religious freedom — the history of Christianity is full of martyrs who died rather than renounce their faith/beliefs — and here these cowards will turn children over to aberrant sexual freaks, something they know is wrong, for the sake of money.

  3. They must have already been Satanists to begin with, just waiting for this moment in time. If not, then BOUGHT OFF. Can’t believe how they are getting this world all sewn up in their own image–so fast! However, rushing it all may also be their undoing.
