Christian persecution is at an all-time high worldwide.
And reports are piling up of Western Secularists trying to socially engineer Christianity out of existence through government schools.
But what happened to this Christian couple just exposed the pervasive anti-Christian bigotry of the west for the world to see.
An Ontario, Canada Christian couple was denied being foster parents because they believe the entire Bible is true and homosexuality is morally wrong.
Ontario’s government agency in charge of Child, Youth and Family Services condescendingly asked if the couple believed in “some of the more outdated parts of the Bible.”
When the couple answered they believe in the whole Word of God, they peppered the couple with questions regarding homosexuality.
Then, when the couple answered they believed homosexuality to be morally wrong but would treat the children under their care with respect, dignity, honor, and unconditional love, the agency derided the them as “oppressive.”
Life Site News Reports:
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF.ca) has sent a legal demand letter to Simcoe Muskoka Child, Youth and Family Services (“Child Services”) calling upon it to reverse its decision to dismiss the application of a loving couple seeking to become foster parents.
. . .
The social worker asked L questions regarding his religious beliefs, including whether his church “still believes in some of the more outdated parts of the Bible.” He responded that his church believes and adheres to all of the Bible. The social worker then commented that her son is gay and that her son had been told by churches in the past that homosexuality is a sin. L explained that although the Bible does identify homosexual behaviour as a “sin,” he believes all people are created in the image of God and are worthy of respect, dignity and honor. He further explained that, in accordance with their beliefs, he and his wife would provide any child in their care with unconditional love, respect, and compassion regardless of the child’s sexuality.
The couple heard nothing from Child Services for the next six months. Then, on October 24, 2018 they received a letter from Child Services communicating its decision to dismiss their application to foster. The letter stated, “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.”
On the morning of October 25, L phoned their social worker and asked for clarification about which “values and beliefs” had disqualified him and his wife. Ms. Batt responded that Child Services’ “anti-oppressive” policy conflicted with the couple’s views regarding homosexuality. L reiterated the couple’s commitment to treating any child in their care with unconditional love, respect, and compassion regardless of their sexuality, gender or anything else, but Ms. Batt did not offer any recourse.
The only oppression going on here is the oppression by the Secular Left on children waiting for foster parents.
When a perfectly loving, peaceable, and well-adjusted couple applied to be foster parents, the government-run adoption agency decided to put their anti-Christian agenda ahead of public good.
Not only is this a direct attack on Christian values and ethics, but it shows the disgusting course the Secular West has charted.
They think the unconditional love and human dignity that Christianity teaches is “oppressive.”
But the real oppression is denying loving foster parents to kids desperately trying flee abusive or unsafe homes.
Do you think Christians should be denied being foster parents simply because they’re Christians?
