If you ever wanted to see what happens to purported Christians who decide to serve Mammon instead of God, look no further than to the Bible thumping Republicans in Georgia.
The state is updating the adoption laws like Texas did last year. The laws need to be updated. No one disputes that. The question is whether the state should deny faith-based adoption agencies the right to help the state place children in loving homes. And the Georgia Republicans have said yes. TAKE ACTION NOW.
They had a provision that would allow faith-based adoption agencies to place children in loving homes without having to abandon their deeply held religious views on marriage. But under pressure from Governor Nathan Deal and Speaker David Ralston, the State Senate has stripped those religious protection.
The Georgia Republicans are afraid of offending Hollywood studios and Amazon.com, which they are desperate to bring into the state. As a result, they are telling faith-based adoption agencies that they must abandon their views on marriage if they want to place kids in state foster care into loving homes. Amazingly, when Texas updated their adoption laws, the Republicans led by Governor Abbott insisted on religious liberty protections for faith-based adoption agencies.
They are putting the gay rights agenda ahead of the adoption agenda. The Georgia Republicans are siding with the secular left in the culture war. Any faith-based adoption agency must start adopting to same-sex couples in order to help kids in foster care.
