Are Christians Unfit to Be Foster Parents?

The war on Christians is on steroids in the Pacific Northwest. Sierra Dawn McClain describes in the March 23/24 Wall Street Journal how gender ideology is being used to "cleanse" the foster care system of Christian foster parents in Washington and Oregon.

To get a license in Washington state, foster parents must agree to "connect a foster child with resources that support and affirm their needs regarding race, religion, culture and SOGIE." SOGIE is an acronym for "sexual orientation and gender identity/expression."

The Washington state regulations make it clear what "support and affirm" means. It includes displaying LGBTQIA+ flags in the home, exposing the children to homosexual authors, artists, and musicians, and, importantly, providing "affirming medical care" for the foster child.

The phrase "affirming medical care" always refers to puberty-blocking hormones and/or disfiguring surgeries, including castration and mastectomies for children who think they are in the wrong body.

Oregon has gone down the same road with regulations requiring foster parents to buy into the LGBTQIA+ agenda no matter what the consequences are for the children. Effectively, Christians who take their faith seriously could not be foster parents in either state.

The good news is that our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom are representing Christian parents seeking legal redress in both states.

The bad news is that so much of our country is in the grip of progressive ideology at every level of government that endangers our children and threatens religious liberty.

Biden's War on Women

The Biden administration hopes the abortion issue will lead to his re-election in November. Women voters may want to think twice, however. Late last Friday, the administration declared war on women by distorting and destroying Title IX, a landmark 1972 law that bans sex discrimination in any school that receives federal funding. Title IX guarantees equal treatment for women in every aspect of education from the classroom to sports. Feminists hailed its passage 52 years ago, but the law may have a fatal omission that the Biden administration just drove a truckload of "wokeness" through: It didn't define what a woman is.

Religious Left Smears Christian Conservatives

As we have repeatedly warned, there is a deliberate effort to intimidate, shame, smear, and even threaten conservative Christians out of the political and public policy arena. It is understandable that the radical, secular Left would want to do that. But it is outrageous that some so-called "progressive Christians" are lending their support to this effort.

Stand With Israel

We thank God that the April 13th missile and drone attack on Israel, by the Islamic Republic of Iran, failed. Many of the 300 missiles and drones were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defense system or by U.S. and Israeli jets. But the failure of the attack does not erase its significance. For the first time, Iran has launched an attack directly from its own territory on Israel, instead of using its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
