D.C.'s Catholic Church blames the Gays for abandoning its Foster Care Program After threatening to end its adoption and homeless services programs in Washington D.C. if the City Council approved gay marriage there, the catholic church’s charities unit is indeed dismantling its foster care program because they fear the city might somehow "force" the church to officiate gay unions and recognize same-sex partners of employees. However, maybe this has turned out for the best. The children, their families, and even the program’s semployees have found a new home — at the National Center for Children and Families, which is not affiliated with any religious institution. Which means these children will still have the services they very much need, without the intervention of a church that abandoned them to uphold discrimination and seeing how church institutions have sexually & physically abused thousands of kids it might be for the better.
