Skip to comments.Massachusetts "weeding out" foster & adoptive parents who won't support children's LGBT identities
Posted on 07/29/2013 8:34:01 PM PDT by massmike
It's now official policy in Massachusetts: Adults holding traditional values will no longer be allowed to adopt or be foster parents.
On May 15, 2013, the Boston Bar Association held a forum with the Mass. Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Mass. Commission on LGBT Youth. The DCF speakers confirmed that they are "weeding out" adoptive and foster parents who are not willing to wholly accept and support LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender) self-identification by a child in their care.
Erika Rickard, Vice Chair of the Mass. Commission on LGBT Youth and herself a foster parent, called attention to the urgent need for "supportive" foster parents for LGBT youth (who, she estimates, make up about 20% of youth in foster care in the state). The Commission is working in conjunction with the Mass. Department of Children and Families (DCF) to find them "safe, welcoming, and affirming homes."
Every social worker in the Massachusetts DCF system now has LGBT issues training (first reported by my MassResistance blog in 2005). The DCF also now runs a mentoring program for foster and adoptive parents. The 8-hour course includes discussion of sexual orientation, gender identity, and trauma understanding. One DCF staffer, Jody, hopes to have the True Colors Out Youth Theater group (part of the Theater Offensive) perform at every regional office as part of staff training. She recommends that the group PFLAG (Parents Families Friends & Allies of LGBT People) speak to all foster parents on how they can show their acceptance and support.

So much for the lie that homosexuality is only about consenting ADULTS in PRIVATE.
I wonder are those people going to really take care of a kid that is straight?
They don’t believe ANY kid is straight. And any kid who thinks he is, must be oppressed and therefore “counseled” until he understands that he “really” is queer.
Sweartagod, without even looking, when it’s a story about queers and kids, you can win a bet 90% of the time by betting on Massachusetts.
Wow. They probably are find fostering kids wit pedophiles too
They recruit the normal kids, they won’t stay normal
I sure am glad that I won’t be around when these freaky little LGBT units grow to be the size of adults. This country is going to be one wacked out freak show.
As unconstitutional as it gets, and not a damned thing we can do about it.
It already is.
If you can’t counsel a kid about heterosexual doubts, then you can’t counsel a kid INTO homosexual acts either. equal protection is a bitch goddess.
There are few enough families that will care for these children without bureaucrats "weeding them out."
So put him in a place he’ll get raped! That’s the way it should be in New England!
This is definitely about pedophilia. The homos are coming for the kids with the help of the so called Department of “Education”.
liberal laws only go one way though
and coming to a state near you, soon. Courtesy of the DEMS. Warn America, but they won’t believe ya.
Exactly, isn’t Obama Education czar known to support Nambla?
Introducing a person under 18 to the concepts of fisting, anal sex, sex toys, etc. was at one time a criminal offense (corrupting a minor and providing obscene/adult only materials to a minor).
Even now sex toys are supposed to only be sold to those over 21 (a law broken every day by Amazon.com).
correction (although some regions may be 21)

Hello Kitty has their own line of sex toys.
perverted Japan again
You really think that those weeding out “wrong-thinking” foster families are concerned about something so... esoteric.... as equal protection?
Can an atheist couple prohibit their foster child from praying at the dinner table?
I’m liking Massachusetts’ role as the east coasts own “faggot central”, the way San Fransicko has long had that role for the west coast. Whatever attracts the perverts and pedophiles away from my neighborhood works for me.
Sure. And it will be considered “child abuse” if a Catholic couple try to tell their child about hell and eternal damnation.
we can't feed our kids salty foods or fatty foods or have them eat fresh veggies from the garden without washing them, have to have them buckled up in a car til so many pounds up to age 12, and we have to send them to school, and we have to get them immunized...
but we're going to place them with homosexuals?....we're going to NOT demand the best of parents for them?....
I don't get it....
then again, why would any of these young women ever, ever give their baby up to the likes of these people....
It’s weird. I don’t think we have enough parents anymore. Most of the parental units are too busy playing with their “smart” phone to worry about what is happening to their children.
See my tagline.
What about Q? they forgot about Q, or did they omit Q on purpose? Apparently Massacheussets, or whatever, is a bunch of homophobe bigots.
I’m going to bed. When I wake up I want my country back.
I would say that IF a child in the care of the state of Massachusettes, a child in need of foster or adopting parents, is already a child whom the state knows as a “gay” self-identifying child (how old??), then the state MIGHT find it reasonable to try to find “supportive” parents for such a child - whatever THAT means, but the state has no business presuming that potential foster/adoptive parents of ANY child is not suitable for ANY child, due to that adult’s views of persons who are “gay”.
Not as long as the child refers to God as "she". /sarc
“They dont believe ANY kid is straight. \”
CORRECT. Fudgepackers think we, sane, straight, heteros are the ones that need counseling because we love to shag the opposite sex which is normal. Them, being abornmal screwed up degenerates, are the opposite, thinking he same sex is normal.
To them, being a homo is normal and natural, but if 2 faggots stick their sausages in a twist, they will “normally” and “naturally” create a child. And not one poofter was able to answer this query about normally reproducing as nature, their Gaia, intended it to be.
abortion of indoctrination. Take your pick.
I’m beginning to believe that myself.
sad to say that’s probably true.
To a homosexual, Q means bi means HOMOsexual. Just need the right push to experiment. Questioning never means “maybe be one confused heterosexual”.
So much for diversity. Celebrate perversity and recruit, recruit, recruit.
Deval Patrick enabled Ms. Lord to be murdered
by DOING NOTHING against criminals and rapists
whom he protects, and encourages like his hero, Holder.
“I sure am glad that I wont be around when these freaky little LGBT units grow to be the size of adults. This country is going to be one wacked out freak show.”.........
It already has become and IS a wacked out freak show.
Please tell all your friends there in MA what liberalism does to a society.
It’s all so confusing!
But one thing that is crystal clear to me is that none of them should be around children ever for any reason.
Children require a mother and a father, not someone pretending to be a mother or a father or both.
The reason for that is so that the child has the best chance at becoming a well and properly developed adult. I do not care at all if homosexuals feel good about themselves or included or accepted to anything else when it comes to children.
Guess that makes me a bigot, but I am going to stand my ground!
Time for...ohhh...I don’t know....a culling?
