Have your read the story about the Alberta couple whose application to adopt a child has been rejected because of their beliefs?
The evangelical couple has been told that even though they submitted the adoption application and passed the required courses necessary for the adoption, that they won’t be approved because of their religious views on same sex marriage. The couple says they understand that same-sex marriage is a reality and the law in Canada, but they don’t support it. instead they believe in the Biblical view of marriage.
The case worker supervisor explained that their religious beliefs regarding sexuality were incompatible with the adoption process. When the decision was appealed, they were told that this was the official position of the Alberta Government.
So, with that decision, the Alberta Government has said that children will not be permitted to be adopted by many Christian, Muslim or Jewish families.
The government has decided that anyone who has a moral compass that differs from the secular society can’t be trusted to raise children. And they are in effect saying that parentless children would be better off in the system than to be adopted by evangelical Christians.
To again quote the warning of the Prophet Hosea “For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.”
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
