Will Now Place Children With LGBTQE (E) Is for Evil Couples…
Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption and foster care agency in the United States, has changed its longstanding policy to only place children with heterosexual married couples and will now begin serving LGBTQ couples nationwide.
According to The New York Times, Chris Palusky, the organization’s president and chief executive, announced the change in an email to the staff.
“We will now offer services with the love and compassion of Jesus to the many types of families who exist in our world today,” Palusky wrote. “We’re taking an ‘all hands on deck’ approach where all are welcome.”
Since 2007, the agency took the policy position that “God’s design for the family is a covenant and lifelong marriage of one man and one woman.” Yet in January, Bethany’s board voted to approve an inclusivity resolution, removing its previous statement and replacing it with, “Christians of mutual good faith can reasonably disagree on various doctrinal issues, about which Bethany does not maintain an organizational position.”
Although the new policy doesn’t specifically mention anything about homosexuality, Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, says Bethany’s position is clear.
“You don’t have to say we’re endorsing same-sex marriage if you abandon your convictional statement that marriage can only be the union of a man and a woman,” he said. “It’s not as if the world doesn’t understand what we’re doing, and it’s not as if Christians don’t understand what Bethany here has done. … They have taken a very clear position identified here as consistent inclusive policies. What’s gone is the position statement on a Biblical understanding of marriage. It simply disappeared.”
This is not the first time Bethany has succumbed to the pressures of the LGBTQ agenda.
In 2018, a lesbian couple attended one of Bethany’s informational sessions on foster parenting. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the couple was told that the organizations had “never placed a child with a same-sex couple” and was referred to other agencies.
Once the incident became public, the media attention prompted the city to suspend its contracts with Bethany’s local branch, as well as Catholic Social Services (CSS), for their decision to subscribe to a Biblical view of marriage and only place children with a husband and wife.
But while CSS refused to walk away from its deeply held convictions and sued the city of Philadelphia over the contract suspension, Bethany’s Philadelphia branch opted to comply and changed its policy to allow children to be placed with same-sex couples. The city then restored its contract with Bethany.
“Bethany Christian Services surrendered even before the war had been fought,” Mohler said.
CSS’ case against Philadelphia was heard by the Supreme Court in November, and a ruling is expected by the end of June.
Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, worries that Bethany’s decision to adopt the LGBTQ-friendly policy nationwide will make it harder for CSS, and other faith-based adoption and foster care agencies, to fight for religious exemptions.
“I am disappointed in this decision, as are many,” Moore said in a statement on Monday. “The need is great for distinctively Christian adoption and foster care services, including that children need both mothers and fathers. Moreover, this move will harm already existing efforts to enable faith-based orphan care ministries to serve the vulnerable without capitulating on core Christian convictions.
“The better way to serve is to hold the line when Caesar wants to be Messiah too,” he added. “The state has no right to serve as lord over the conscience. Nonetheless, many evangelical orphan care ministries are working, and will continue to work, for vulnerable children in need of families, while still holding to the faith.”

Watchmen does not confuse truth with consensus. The Watchmen does not confuse God’s word with the word of those in power…
In police-state fashion, Big Tech took the list of accused (including this site), declared all those named guilty and promptly shadow-banned, de-platformed or de-monetized us all without coming clean about how they engineered the crushing of dissent. Now more than ever, Big Tech has exposed their hand. They engage in devious underhanded tactics to make the sinister look saintly. One of Satan’s greatest weapons happens to be deceit.
The accumulating death toll from Covid-19 can be seen minute-by-minute on cable news channels. But there’s another death toll few seem to care much about: the number of poverty-related deaths being set in motion by deliberately plunging millions of Americans into poverty and despair.
American health care, as we call it today, for all its high-tech miracles, has evolved into one of the most atrocious rackets the world has ever seen. By racket, I mean an enterprise organized explicitly to make money dishonestly.
All the official reassurances won’t be worth a bucket of warm spit. The Globalists are behind the Corona-virus. It Is a Man-Made Bio-weapon.

Like in the day of Noah…..all manner of wickedness and Godlessness shall cover the earth.
I wonder should Bethany Christian Services, the largest Christian adoption and foster care agency in the United States
just have said NO?
Now that they have caved in to those evil promoters how many others will send children into homes
of deviants, ruing the lives of tens of thousands of children.
Scriptures say that things will be so bad that unless Messiah returns no flesh shall be saved alive.
We cannot know the day and hour of His return but it seems we are living in the “season of signs” testifying that we
are moving closer each day.
