Liberal Adoption Agency Declares Christians Make 'Unfit and Dangerous Parents'
Group refuses children to families whose religious beliefs are Christian
A liberal adoption agency has caused outrage after it has announced that it will no longer accept applications from Christian families as they make "unfit and dangerous parents."
The government-backed agency in Alberta, Canada has declared that applicants who hold any form of religious view related to Christianity will be turned away because of the views they "may" hold.
The agency stated that Christians usually don't approve of homosexual marriage, transgender relationships, and are not open to raising "gender fluid" children, which makes them "unfit to care for a child."
A spokesperson for the agency said that their stance was not exclusive as it is the "official position of the Alberta government."
This new "official position" taken by adoption groups in Canada and the US is of most concern because applicants are not even questioned about their views on gay marriage, but are instead pigeon-holed by the religion they belong to.
According to LSN, there is the fact that public schools across Canada (and many places in the United States) are beginning to implement sex education that runs directly contrary to the beliefs of many traditionalist communities—and governments are beginning to eye Christian and private schools as unwelcome havens of dissenting thought and education.
And worse: Christian parents and foster parents are increasingly finding themselves “disqualified” from adopting children or taking children into their homes because of the assumed views held by their religion.
Many prospective parents and foster parents over the last several years have either been overtly rejected as a result of their religious views or otherwise found that they were suddenly and abruptly rejected when their views were made known.
Often, trick questions are put to prospective parents to find out if they still hold to Christian principles, with the obvious insinuation that answers not fitting with the current progressive ideology will render them unfit to care for children.
Considering the massive shortage of willing foster parents across Canada, this is a rather shocking and blunt move on the part of those in charge of the process: Essentially, Christian parents are being told that their views render them so dangerous that it is better that children, desperate for a loving home, are still shuffled from place to place rather than come into contact with views that were nearly universal only short decades ago.
Such stories are now just beginning to surface in the mainstream media, with an Edmonton, Alberta couple being the latest example.
According to Canada’s national broadcaster, a Christian couple is accusing Alberta of discrimination, claiming their application to adopt a child was rejected over their "religious views on gay marriage and homosexuality."
The Edmonton married couple says they submitted their application last year and passed a required course for potential adoptive parents.
But during a followup by officials this year, the couple say they ran into trouble when they answered questions about their religious status.
The couple says they accept that same-sex marriage is a legal reality, but it was something that had never come up in their own lives having only ever been in a heterosexual marriage themselves.
"The casework supervisor explained that our religious beliefs regarding sexuality were incompatible with the adoption process," says an affidavit filed in support of an application for a judicial review of the government's decision.
"The casework supervisor said this stance was the 'official position of the Alberta government.' "
You’ll notice that the initial myths propagated by those who advocated for the reinvention of marriage are crumbling away.
The government does not take a neutral position—after all, it is not only Christians who hold a traditional understanding of marriage: Sikhs, Muslims, mainstream Mormons, Catholics, and Orthodox Jews also reject the progressive reinvention of marriage.
Of course, it is so far only Christians who have found themselves in the crosshairs, and so politicians feel perfectly comfortable smearing and bashing these communities as bigots without feeling as if they are undermining their vacuous virtue-signaling on multiculturalism and immigration.
There is now an official “government position,” and those who do not hold it are rapidly becoming second-class citizens.
The government’s rejection of Christian homes as loving environments for children is an implicit statement: They are stating that Christians are not fit to raise children—because they are Christian.
This is why provincial governments across Canada are making moves to force Christian schools to change thousands of years of doctrine, and this is why Christians must be alert and aware of what is taking place, and engaged in the political process.
After all, if Christian parents are deemed unfit to care for children with nowhere else to go, how long will it be before the government decides that they are unfit to care for any children?
What if they decide that any educational institution or homeschooling group that does not adhere to the “government position” can no longer be entrusted with children?
What if they decide that parents who hold to Christian principles are damaging their own children because of those principles?
Listen closely to the rhetoric that is being used, and look carefully at the justification politicians like Alberta Premier Rachel Notley are using to make it illegal for parents to be told what their children are doing while at school in the care of government employees.
They are already making the case that Christian parents are dangerous.
And that, for Christian parents and their children, could turn into an existential threat.
