If any orginization recieves public money,they should not be allowed to set rules that are denominational. There are too many children in the foster care and state custody,if there are parents out there or couples who want to adopt,then if they are of the means to do so,by all means then they should be allowed to. If they do want to make that a determining factor,then they should reject ant money that is from the sell of state sponsered license plates.
I am not Catholic,nor was I raised that way,my parents had me in a Holy Roller church,but there is no one here who is not friends with someone who is Catholic,whether they talk about it or stay with their faith. The majority of my friends were raised in the Catholic church and they ae all good people,who do a real good job of raising their own kids.Plus,the longer a child is in the custody of states or foster families,the less their chances are of being adopted.People just do not adopt kids who are 12 years old as often,they all want babies and toddlers.
There is a guy at work,super nice man,good family values,who recently spent over $10,000 to go to China and adopt a litle girl,if anyone here is familiar with China's policy on female babies you will understand exactly how screwed up they are over there.I had to ask him why he would spend that type of money when there are thousands of children here in the U.S who are in the same situation as far as needing families.There are things they will do overseas,that they would never do here to a child,but I just had to ask him. I did not put it in a sense to put him down,but I was curious. He did not have an answer,and I did not hold it against him.The girl they went and brought home is a cute little 1 year old,who would no doubt have been left alone in a corner to die if he had not rescued her.I still wonder why people do not take care of the little ones here with such compassion.
