Michigan is ordering faith-based adoption agencies to violate their own religious beliefs and place children with LGBTQ couples.
Agencies that decide not to reject their own faith will no longer be allowed to receive funding from the state to make foster care adoptions possible.
The decision by the state is part of a legal settlement that was announced between Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office and lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU had sued the state for two lesbian couples.
Nessel said, “Limiting the opportunity for a child to be adopted or fostered by a loving home not only goes against the state’s goal of finding a home for every child, it is a direct violation of the contract every child-placing agency enters into with the state.”
