Skip to comments.Massachusetts "weeding out" foster & adoptive parents who won't support children's LGBT identities

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?
