New Bill Defends Christian Foster Homes Who Are Banned From Fostering

December 7th, 2023 11:12 AM

In September, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released new guidelines for the nation’s foster care system which would limit the ability for Christians to foster children in the system by mandating LGBTQ-identifying youth would be placed in homes that would encourage, celebrate and help facilitate any progressive identities or delusion. 

“The proposed rule would protect LGBTQI+ youth by placing them in environments free of hostility, mistreatment, or abuse based on the child’s LGBTQI+ status. And the proposed rule would require that caregivers for LGBTQI+ children are properly and fully trained to provide for the needs of the child related to the child’s self-identified sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression,” the text stated.

As a result, a family in Massachusetts, the Burkes, actually had their application to become foster parents denied after they noted that they would not help a child transition or identify with something that they are not, explaining that they're Catholic and those sorts of delusions don’t align with their views. According to the new HHS guidelines, they would not be allowed to foster.

In response, Representative Jim Banks (R-Ind.) this week proposed a new bill called the Sensible Adoption for Every (SAFE) Home Act, which would prevent child welfare agencies from blocking interested foster families who intend to raise children in ways “consistent with the minor’s biological sex,” as Fox News reported.

Essentially, the SAFE Home Act “would prevent child welfare agencies and related groups that receive federal funding from getting those funds if they refuse prospective parents who insist against the child’s stated LGBTQ status,” Fox News Digital reported.

“The Biden administration is cruelly preventing countless children in the foster care and adoption system from going to loving homes just because parents are opposed to irreversible sex change procedures on kids,” Banks told Fox News Digital, adding, “This isn’t a liberal or conservative issue. This is just plain wrong, and every sane person knows it.”

Presently the HHS would rather have children remain orphans than have them enter homes that run based on Christian values.  It’s showing that our administration thinks it’s more important for kids to be pushed down a path of delusion than it is for them to have a roof over their heads.
