In a victory for religious freedom, a federal judge in Michigan ruled a Catholic adoption agency that contracts with the state will be allowed to refuse to handle adoption requests that would place children with LGBTQ couples.
The judge pointedly noted that in opposing the agency, the states attorney general engaged in a targeted attack on the agencys sincerely held religious belief.
The ruling came Sept. 26 in a case cited as Buck v. Gordon, which involved Lansing-based St. Vincent Catholic Charities, along with Chad and Melissa Buck, parents of five children with special needs, and Shamber Flore, a former foster child.

Small wins create the stage for bigger wins.
Yes !! Since the beginning of our country, religion has ALWAYS been used as a right. Many men did NOT participate in “war” because of Religious beliefs.
i wonder if agencies that do not allow LGBTQ parents will thrive or dwindle...
Good. Years ago when we were trying to adopt, they let us know that Catholic couples were first in line. (We’re Christians, but not Catholic.) We completely understood and wouldn’t expect anything different. It’s their agency and their rules apply.

What a relief it is to hear of a Judge upholding our laws and our freedoms. Hope we see more of it.
Now keep these “whatevers” out of bathrooms where they do not belong.
Winning. Not tired yet.
libtard perverts will appeal.
Would you give a son up for adoption knowing he was going to be raised by two gay men?

John Roberts is full of Mitt about party affiliation.
Until it gets bumped up to a higher court.
What this case is about is whether St. Vincent may continue to do this work and still profess and promote the traditional Catholic belief that marriage, as ordained by God, is for one man and one woman. In 2015, Michigans state legislature passed a law designed to ensure it could do just that.
Ok so they handled same-sex placements before but now want to refuse to do same-sex placements? What changed?
it was sort of rhetorical and sarcastic, but i will say that no one will be using the secular agency i predict.
the left’s choice is abortion.
