SB2495 was introduced in the Illinois Senate on Wednesday, much to the chagrin of the society degradation elements that frequent Huffingtonpost.com. This bill would allow Catholic Charities to continue to help in the placement of children in foster care and adoptions while not violating its deeply held belief in... well, nature. Certainly those who value the agenda of the left over the well-being of children will fight like dog's at Michael Vick's old house against this bill, but there is hope that common sense will prevail despite this being Illinois.
Effingham News Talk WCRA 1090 reported the introduction of this bill on Friday:
State Senator Kyle McCarter introduced legislation to end the discrimination against Catholic Charities by the State Department Children and Family Services (DCFS). The agency had recently ended adoption agreements with the faith-based organization because Catholic Charities does not allow adoptions by unmarried couples. The issue came to the forefront this year when lawmakers legalized civil unions for unmarried couples including same-sex partners.
