"After those states required all agencies to work with same sex couples and many in the christian agencies closed one faith based group alone is responsible for providing half of all foster homes. Arkansas a study in the journal of sociology and social welfare found that parents recruited through church or religious organizations foster two point six years longer than other foster parents and another by the religious group barna found in two thousand thirteen that three percent practicing christians foster child and five percent had adopted but douglas the jamie a professor of law at yale law school points to data from ucla's williams institute where he was a fellow that finds same sex couples also represent a significant portion of the foster community about three percent of same. Sex couples are raising a foster child and more than twenty one percent are raising an adopted child making them seven times more likely than different sex couples to be raising an adopted child civil liberties groups point to the number of foster children who also identify as lgbtq and argue that they need supportive homes.

"Willing parents who are willing to be both emergency foster parents and, of course, long term foster parents. I want to make sure that every single kid who finds himself for herself without a family ends up with it least a really good, solid foster family, even if they eventually go on to say. You know, be adopted by somebody else. Or perhaps the foster parents. They end up with many foster parents fall in love with the kids they're taking care of, and they say, we'd like to adopt this child or these Children. That's wonderful. Well, the city of Philadelphia has a case that just today, the U S Supreme Court announced it is going to hear this case because I think very foolishly, the city of Philadelphia said. We're no longer gonna work with foster care agencies if those agencies will not place Children at times, with LGBT Q. Parents meaning lesbian guy gay, bisexual, transgender and queer parents. If you won't work with those parents than we don't want you to work on behalf of foster kids will Catholic social Services, which is one of the agencies that got cut out by this sued Philadelphia because officials said taxpayers would no longer fund foster care agencies that don't comply with Philadelphia's woke politically correct to point of view. And if you say to me Well, don't you think that there probably are some good foster parents out there who fit within LGBT? Q. Yeah, there probably are. But if you're an agency that because of your religious underpinnings, Catholic social services, I'm a Protestant, but I still appreciate the Catholic religion. If they say we don't want to choose to work with those parents, there will be other agencies that could But to say we no longer want your help or need your help. Don't think and I'll ask Ye sure Russell, he should do you think there's any place in America where there's so many agencies helping out with so many foster families, placing kids that they say Oh, we have plenty. We don't we don't we have more resource is that we know what to do with. We have plenty of agencies working to place kids with foster families. Do you think there's any place in America they couldn't use some more help putting kids into families? No, I don't think so. I mean most of these agencies including Catholic social services, um, plaintiff business suit have, you know they've been working in the foster care? And you see before the government was even doing it? Um, and many of the foster care agencies that are religious across the country, um, could claim that prior to the government even caring for foster kids. These these agencies were doing that and I think that all of the government's all the states really rely on that. I mean, if you look at states like Massachusetts and Other places where they have clothes, Easy's agencies. They've definitely seen it increase in the amount of kids in foster foster care. I'm talking to key to Russell, who's with the First Liberty Institute, because your organization like me have taken the position. We need to support people of all religions and have religious diversity. But this decision if it goes the if it goes the way Philadelphia would like it to go. So do you, Philadelphia, you would effectively take almost every major religion and cut them out of the foster care. Business, right? Yeah, That's right. I mean, I think And like I said, it's happened in many other places, and you'll see that the reduction in the amount of religious agencies, um directly correlates with an increase in foster Children and also the amount of time that those kids are in foster care. So you know, religious agents who's a really instrumental and, um, the foster care programs in America. Are you a lawyer? I can't remember. I am you are. I've done lots of stories on foster families and foster care over the literally over the last couple of decades. I remember that there's a least a certain amount of law that says, if we have, say, a native American child, we do everything we can to place it with a place that child here she with a native American family that if we have a child who has particular set of interests that it you know, it may not make sense to take, Let's say a Muslim child who's a teenager and place Them in a you know, evangelical Christian family or vice versa, that there's a There's an effort to try to fit the child in with the family. And yet, in this case, if we cut all of the major religions of the world out and say you can't you can't do this stuff anymore. We're going all toe sort of secular agencies. Doesn't that work against getting the kid to the family who might Be the best fit for that child. I think it doesn't and also, I think it doesn't limit the amount of options. The potential foster parents haven't well if they want to work with an agency that shares its really disbelief this You know, effectively prohibits them from getting any sort of government connection to do that and getting any referrals. Um and the government would refuse to work with those agencies. And so, um, and there's definitely would be, um, a pretty big big impact. Like I says. We've seen already and some of the states where it's happened in Catholicism won't be the only religion affected by this, will it Oh, gosh. No. Yeah, no, I mean, there's there are many, You know, religions that have very specific beliefs as it relates to sexuality and marriage. And, um, I think oftentimes you'll see that's really the Catholic and Christian agencies that tend to be targeted are at the very least. Those views tends to be under the microscope at this point in time, but You'll find that many religions should hear some of the same requirements. You know, Keith, I was gonna ask you. The Muslim religion is not exactly cool with with gays and lesbians, is it? Well, I can't say that. I know everything about what what the Muslims believe in that regard. But anyway, do you have pretty strict requirements as it relates to how they define marriage in particular? I don't know if they're any Muslim agencies. But there might be some day who say we want to work with foster kids and get them placed. I would imagine they would run afoul of this kind of decision, so the Supreme Court has agreed to take it up. That means they're looking at whether or not this decision for the city of Philadelphia should be overturned, and the city of Philadelphia told you have to work. Work with agencies that have religious beliefs, right? Yeah, and, um, the other morning. Yeah, absolutely. He absolutely That's that's the essence of it. And hopefully that's what the Supreme Court does, Um Definitely some evidence of hostility here in these flat facts that I've seen s so you know, it's it's very likely that the court could decided, you know very much like they decided the masterpiece Cake Shop I was gonna say, is a masterpiece Cake one, where the city was absent, almost openly antagonistic toward religious beliefs. So Philadelphia did that as well. Well, yeah, So there's some facts here regarding the fact that so there was ah, very briefly an article that came out of the Philadelphia Inquirer, which prompted the City Council to pass a resolution calling for an investigation about discrimination. Based, you know from these foster agencies, and they said, under the guise of religion, which is evidence of hostility, meaning that they don't consider that Ah, legitimate reason. Um and there, you know, there's some parallels here for for what the court Supreme Court pointed to in masterpieces, hostility. Um, so it's very very, you know, likely Um, or at least possible that the Supreme Court could say Look, this is hostility to religious beliefs. You targeted these particular agencies. They conducted this investigation against the religious agencies on Lee, not the secular ones never made any enquiries into those decisions. That would, um there's a lot of issues here. No occasion that one sounds like it's going straight up The First Amendment to say we're going after you because of your religion. I thought Well, you don't even have to be a lawyer. To.

"Welcome back to the Lars Larson show it's a pleasure to be with your phone calls and your emails I want to talk about foster kids because I don't think there's any place in America that actually does foster care really well it is always a challenge to find enough willing parents were willing to be both emergency foster parents and of course long term foster parents I want to make sure that every single kid who finds himself or herself without a family ends up with at least a really good solid foster family even if they eventually go on to say you know be adopted by somebody else or perhaps the foster parents they end up with many foster parents fall in love with the kids are getting taken care of and they they say would like to adopt this child or these children that's wonderful well the city of Philadelphia has a case that just today the U. S. Supreme Court announced it is going to hear this case because I think very foolishly the city of Philadelphia said we are no longer going to work with foster care agencies if those agencies will not place children at times with the L. G. B. T. Q. parents meeting lesbian guy gay bisexual transgender and queer parents if you won't work with those parents then we don't want you to work on behalf of foster kids will Catholic social services which is one of the agencies that got cut out by this sued Philadelphia because officials said taxpayers would no longer fund foster care agencies that don't comply with Philadelphia's woke politically correct to a point of view and if you say to me well don't you think that there probably are some good foster parents out there who fit within L. G. B. T. Q. yeah there probably are but if you're an agency that because of your religious underpinnings Catholic social services I'm a Protestant but I still appreciate the Catholic religion if they say we don't want to choose to work with those parents there will be other agencies that could but to say we we no longer want your help or need your help I don't think I'll ask kisha Russell key should you think there's any place in America where there are so many agencies helping out with so many foster families placing kids that they say all we have plenty we don't we don't we have more resources than we know what to do with we have plenty of agencies working to place kids with foster families do you think there's any place in America they couldn't use some more help putting kids into families no I don't think so I mean most of these agencies including Catholic social services plaintiff in the suit had have you know they've been working in the foster care industry before the government was even doing it and many of the foster care agencies at a religious across the country could claim that prior to the government even caring for foster kids believe these agencies were doing that and I think that all of the government all the states really rely on that I mean if you look at states like Massachusetts and other places where they have closed the issues agencies they've definitely seen an increase in the amount of kids in foster foster care I'm talking to kisa Russell who's with the first liberty institute because your organization like me have taken the position we need to support people of all religions and have religious diversity but this decision if it goes the if it goes the way Philadelphia would like it to go the city of Philadelphia you would effectively take almost every major religion and cut them out of the foster care business right yeah that's right I mean I think and like I said it happened in many other places and you'll see that the reduction in the amount of religious agencies directly correlates with an increase and the foster children and also the amount of time that those kids are in foster care so you know religious agencies are really instrumental in the foster care programs in America are you a lawyer I can't remember I am you are I am so yeah I've done lots of stories on foster families and foster care over the literally over the last couple of decades I remember that there's at least a certain amount a law that says if we have say a native American child we we do everything we can to place it with a place that child he or she with a native American family that if we have a child who is particular set of interests that it you know it may not make sense to take let's say a Muslim child who's a teenager and place them in a you know evangelical Christian family or vice versa that there are there's there's a there's an effort to try to fit the child again with the family and yet in this case if we cut all of the major legends of the world out and say you can you can't do this stuff anymore we're going all to be sort of secular agencies does not work against getting the kids of the family who might be the best fit for that trial I think it does then and also I think it definitely limits the amount of options the potential foster parents have as well if they want to work with an agency that shares its religious beliefs but you know practically part prohibits them from getting any sort of government connection to do that and getting anywhere for old and the government will would refuse to work with those agencies and so isn't there definitely would be at a pretty big big impact like I said we've seen already in some of the states where where it's it's happened going Catholicism won't be the only religion affected by this will oh gosh no yeah I know I mean it it there there are many you know religions that have very specific beliefs as it relates to sexuality and marriage and I think oftentimes you'll see that really the Catholic and Christian agencies that tend to be targeted at our or at the very least those views tends to be under the microscope at this point in time but you'll find that many religions well some of the same requirements you know key shows going to ask you the Muslim religion is not exactly got a cool with with gays and lesbians as well I can't say that I know everything what what the models believe in that regard but I mean we do have pretty strict requirements as it relates to how they define marriage in particular so I don't know if there any Muslim agencies but there might be some day who say we want to work with foster kids and get them placed I would imagine they would run afoul of this kind of a decision so the Supreme Court has agreed to take it up that means they're looking at whether or not this decision for the city of Philadelphia should be overturned and the city of Philadelphia told you have to work with agencies that have religious beliefs right yeah and the warrant yeah absolutely yeah absolutely that's that's the essence of it hopefully that's what the Supreme Court does there's definitely some evidence of hostility here in the flat facts that I've seen so you know it's it's very likely that the court could decide it you know very much like they decided the masterpiece Cakeshop I was gonna say is a masterpiece cake one where the city was apps almost openly antagonistic toward religious beliefs so Philadelphia did that as well well yes so there's some facts here regarding the fact that so there is a very briefly in article that came out of the folder for Inquirer which prompted the city council to pass a resolution calling for an investigation about discrimination base you know from the foster agencies and they said under the guise of religion which is evidence of hostility meaning that they don't consider that a legitimate reason and they're you know there are some parallels here for for white the court aspirin court pointed to a masterpiece of hostility so it's very very you know likely or at least possible that the Supreme Court could say look this is hostility to religious beliefs he targeted these particular agency they conducted this investigation against the religious agencies only not the secular ones I never made any enquiries into those decisions so that one there's a lot of issues here you know I keep that one sounds like it's going straight up the first amendment to say we're going after you because of your religion I thought well you don't even have to be a lawyer to understand that doesn't fit with the U. S. constitution can you should keep up the good work at first liberty and thanks for the time that's a.

"Insider we, we gave away some green works power tools of you weeks ago. Tommy has his goodie bag in there. And you never know what Tom is going to pull out of that goodie bag, but you have to be an answer. Insider, right? Tommy, yes. Yes. Okay. Have to be an answering cider, sagoes ninety four five the answer dot com registered today. So yesterday, a married lesbian. Couple announced in a news conference that they would be suing. The Trump administration, South Carolina governor Henry met master and apartment association says, over the religious exemption granted to miracle hill ministries earlier this year ear that allows the organization to its clue perspective. Auster parents who aren't evangelical, Protestant Christians, or don't meet the. Organizations, religious policies, including same sex couples this couple in, in Greenville, are their married. They have two daughters, and they say that they're occasion, the foster through miracle hill and Greenville was rejected based on the criteria that miracle hill uses mis-, mis- Edens, at a news conference yesterday said that all kinds of kids are in need of Austrian, and look, we all can agree to that. There's a big need their thousands of kids who need homes in South Carolina. And this is where what I don't quite understand with argument is you have groups like miracle hill, providing homes for these. So why not go someplace else? If maybe your lifestyle or religion or whatever doesn't isn't a good fit with an organization, so wanted to talk with sandy Fornell director of communications public relations with miracle hill for a few minutes. And he's on the ninety four five. The answer guest line welcome in this morning. Good morning Joey. Thanks for having me. Thank you for spending a few minutes of your time in in. Thank you for what miracle hill does in the upstate community here in, and even though you guys are not a direct party in this federal lawsuit it can't be comforting to hear miracle hill named in some of the news, car ridge, and any sense, referencing federal lawsuit Silla, let's talk for minute about your response. We were truly saddened yesterday to hear this news. Because, you know, miracle hill for a long time has been serving the state's foster children are Bossard care program has been around since nineteen eighty eight and of course, as a Christian foster agency. It's definitely our faith that compels us motivates us and informs. How we do this ministry to children in need. And you know, last year alone we served four hundred children in the foster care system. And you know as a Christian agency where uniquely qualified to be able to go out and recruit, like minded folks, who share the same mission that we do we know that foster parents are in positions of spiritual influence. And so as part of our ministry, we think this wonderful opportunity to minister to children. So it definitely saddened us yesterday to hear that we're being attacked in this way because, you know, foster agencies like miracle hill greatly increase the pool of foster homes. That are available to help children. And that's really what it's all about, you know, it is definitely in the best interest of the state's children to have as many unique foster agencies as possible, because we know that DSS is always, they're, they're always available to license any qualified applicant. So that's always an option, but to have additional agencies vailable that can uniquely recruit within various communities in our state is hugely valuable. You said, you guys have served four hundred this past year. That's right. Last fiscal fiscal year. We served four hundred children in foster care, currently have. Yeah, we have over two hundred families that are serving with us that are ministering with us. And so it's, it's a tremendous opportunity to serve children. Help me understand this sandy, because a read some of the coverage of this yesterday, I receive the news release from a couple of these groups that are involved in this Susan done. She's legal director of the ACO you, South Carolina. And she says, and this is a quote from her that the state is turning his back on forty six hundred children in care mock question is this art? So if miracle hill goes away, let's say that you guys just, just got frustrated. I know you won't because I know what people and what kind of program, you have lists. In theory, let's say you thought you know, we're we're tired of the fight. We're going. To just stop being a part of the, the foster care program, then that means that two hundred three hundred four hundred whatever the number happens to be at that time, less children are going to be served, right? That's right. It's, it's actually not accurate to say that the state is turning its back on children, because of other foster care agencies. The truth is these foster care agencies. Add to the pool of available foster homes. In fact, the department of social services has said that we miracle hill were valued partner in this crisis, because it truly is a crisis in our state. And so we need more not fewer organizations that are serving vulnerable children. And, you know, I think the argument that, you know, people don't have a choice. That's just not true. Because they do there are definitely many faith based organizations and other nonprofit private organizations here in the. State that can serve families. And as I mentioned, always the department of social services is available to assist anyone who wants to take that foster care journey, and it is a journey. It's difficult to be a foster parent. And that's why we believe as, as a Christian organization that we're in a unique position to help people because people who are like minded, they want the support of a Christian organization, and we're there to support them through that journey which helps them to be more successful. And that's what we all want. We want parents to be successful in their foster care journey so that these children will be able to remain in a stable home and not be shifted from place to place, which causes more trauma to these children. So having unique agencies that can recruit within specific communities is very valuable to our state and to the states children. At miracle hill and his monitor standing and USA, again. What I read from this news conference yesterday I was not there. I have not met miss well to miss Rogers, but were, you aware they had applied is monitor standing that you guys anytime someone is just not a good fit for your particular program that you help them, you refer them to other agencies and you did this with them, right? Absolutely. When they applied, and when we realized that they were not in agreement with our doctrinal statement, we definitely referred them to several other agencies. We gave them that information. We also told them that about DSS is being an option for them. And we also encourage them that, you know, if they would like to serve with miracle hill in some other way, we would welcome them to do that. You know, miracle hill has been around since nineteen thirty seven serving the homeless here in the upstate. And those who are recovering from the diction, and we welcome volunteers from all persuasions to be able to come and serve with us. But of course when it comes to positions, spiritual influence, we certainly wanna partner with people who are like minded, who agree with our beliefs, but we have places for all people to serve in our ministry. And so we courage these women to do that, if they would like to serve with us in some other way. Earlier in the year when the administration of children and families, a part of the department of HHS that was part of their waiver, and I'm going to read, they're quote, it said the government should not be in the business of forcing foster care providers to close their doors because of their faith religious freedom, as a fundamental human, right? And that's what we're talking about here is is miracle hills religious freedom. Right. And, you know, if miracle hill were the only provider, then, of course, I think there would be some validity to an argument, but we're not we're not the only provider as a faith based provider, we're simply adding to the pool, where simply helping to increase the number of options.

We were met with a little bit of anger a little bit of resentment because in this process we, we kept seeing people who were living in sin teenagers in our own family people in our own family that had multiple abortions is like bam. Bam van they're just they're just, you know, pregnant, they're just popping out babies, and then they're, they're sitting there contemplating abortion and Shelby ireson. There were getting angry were like, you know, these people are being given such gift in there. I thought is less destroy it. And that was something that we struggled with was having anger. We did. Honestly, we were like you know, like, why would God bless this person with a child, but we actually won't raise a child in the ways of the Lord and we're not being blissed. It took us a while to really come to grips with God's sovereignty in this in our life. And now now. Al this forest to say that you came to faster than not did that, that within the last. But, but I did. I found an inner peace with it quicker than she did. And, and, you know, I- tribute that to number one is the people that are disciple in me is that they were they were very vocal in trusting in God's sovereignty. And you know at some point I said it last week that are few weeks that we're more in line with open theis than we are with Calvin, theology. That God is all powerful all sovereign. That I mean, nothing none of that, none of this, that we have gone through this far as infertility, none of this surprising to God. No. And we'll, and then you getting through it, I think, is, what really helped me because you being able to process that lot, the now he was able to focus on my needs in in my just my motion support system. You were there for me. So yeah, we really struggled in that area. We've come to grips with, you know, we, we have we have a few days where we kinda have little or. Yeah, I have. Moment where the rain will kinda seat down on us. But and we're going to move into the news right now. I don't have been. Have you joined this episode? I've enjoyed doing it. I have two good. I've enjoyed doing that this ode. I, I wanna do it a little bit more often. She's my. She's my. She's my right hand woman. I'm your partner in Krum, ios. So something that Shelby, not have always wanted to do even before we were faced with these issues of infertility, something that we had discussed was that we always wanted to adopt that was something that we always wanted to do because here's the thing. There are a lot of children that are in the systems when the what, what were we told their fifteen thousand kids in the in industry here insistent in the state of Georgia alone? So there are a lot of kids that are with injure, very own state within our state, who are in desperate, need, and that shows the foster system, that's not even counting the ones that are in the adoption homes and all this, and that on, on bless I don't I don't know, if that counts any of the providence options, but the people who are pregnant who are already in an agency to adopt their child out. And I don't think then accounts them so something Shelby. Now, we've always wanted to do though we've always wanted to adopt. And we had talked about doing fostering. So what we decided to do was, we were going to fall Stor, and then move into adoption. So we are crossing that bridge. Now, we, it was a very interesting way went about. We Frank say, Franks, always in the middle of our stories. But anyway, so Frank's brother and sister in law, actually, went through providence agency. And, you know, anytime I says providence agent say, you know, money starts flashing Emma because when we were looking originally to just adopt, you know, it was like forty thousand dollars. And, you know, that's, that's something that we all see right is so expensive to adopt but is so cheap to get an abortion, and that is the fact that, you know, is very unfortunate how ever listen to this people the agency that we are going through right now, as far as the false during goes it is a Christian agency. We actually had to sign a statement of faith that we held to specific. Points that we held to the doctrine of the trinity. We held the deity of Christ we held to the sufficiency and efficiency of scripture, there was a lot more on their reports about in in. Here's the thing is I'm not going to sign a statement of if I don't believe in it, if it was something that was promoting my Motorola's or something like that. I'm not signing that statement of faith, and he would y'all. So it was kind of, you know, we went to one of Frank's daughters of the aunts, and his brother showed up and his wife, and they were talking, and it was kinda like, they got all this information. And we talked about it for about four months, or so. And then one day I was like you know what? I'm just going to see if this is something they would even consider allowing us to do it. So James, the most random message. I'm like, hey, I need you to type something up for us. I'm always the one. I'm very good grammatically. I'm very good at writing. So i'm. Always the one that has to type things up. And he's like, what is this four Shelby Murray? So we talked about it, and whenever you're listening to this recording. We will have been done completed our certification for fostering in this program under the state of Georgia. We completed a couple of couple of weekends ago now or we completed a couple of weekends as of last weekend as of this recording. Very good classes, amazing classes, a lot of good theology in the class too because of it being a Christian organization. So we have completed the classes and all that we need in order to be able to foster in the state of Georgia. The only thing that they have to do is we have to allow defense, which is the, the Georgia system, where kids are placed into foster care. They are gonna come in to an evaluation of the home may tell us what we need to childproof yet. We had these childproof Danes on the door. They're going. Come in do that. Once we are done with that probably around the beginning of August. Yeah. Probably within a in the next couple of months anyways, we will hopefully have our first placement where we will be foster parents. And here's the thing is that with, with the way that this works is, we can be a respite home, which means that we can basically be babysitters foster, if alster family has an issue or problem in the in their family, a death or something or they just. Right. Because, you know, believe it or not, some of these families get caught up in issues and these children have siblings, and, you know, here's the thing, too, is that I realized that the thought of fostering, or dominating it can be very intimidating because whenever we were going through this class, you know, we're getting hit bam. Bam, bam that these are the cons of kids that are coming into this system, and it's really a matter of very. Unfortunate circumstances from drugs from physical abuse sexual abuse. You know, we can become a respite home, where we are basically taken kids in two three days or so. And then they go back to their regular foster home. We can take lace mints to where they're with us for a few months. But the thing that Shelby in are wanting to do is in the state of Georgia is you have to have a child in your home, six months before you are eligible to adopt that child. And that, of course, is assuming that parental rights have been completely terminated so Shelby. An hour are aiming to foster with intention of adopting, you know, we see the arguments all the time, right? Georgia. Just signed this new heartbeat, Bill in and there's a comments and threads everywhere on, like our local news outlets and people on our hope that means y'all going, be fostering. Yeah. We are. We are. Yeah. That, that argument doesn't work with us because that's something that we do wanna do. But here's the thing is, we believe that there are many, many. Many, many many, many does a little mini mini. There are many other people out there who have the ability to do these saints. And I think that we have a responsibility in a way, exactly in something, you have to remember in something that you have to get right in your heart. I guess, in something that we really struggled with from, you know, from my dad's adopted something you've, you know, I've always struggled with his while if I'm just a foster parent. These kids are gonna come in my life, and then they're gonna leave. And I think something that we really had to get past is that if we can be that one person a stable home for one week and give them three meals a day and show them that somebody loves

"Religious intolerance by the left or intolerance by those that are religious depends on how you look at it. As a new Bill is working its way through the Tennessee legislature, which would give protections to religious organizations that place and do adoptions that they would not be forced to compromise their moral beliefs. By refusing to place a child in a same sex household. Lot of this is about the religious protection. That's what that's what a lot of this is actually about. A lot of this is the you know. Is is really just that. Religious protection for them. Let me go to your phone calls and see what you guys think about this. The number five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three two. There are a lot of lawsuits that come in. And that's just the truth. And there are people that look to sue ACLU sued an entire state in one recently over this exact issue. So anyone that says this isn't about you know, protections and that way, you're just lying. You're just you're just lying. It's just that's just not the case five three five nine seven three to let me go to India's. If you could pull up April for me for some reason mind locked out over here, April, you're on the Ben Ferguson show. Hi. Pair. Sample are many. Relations and training. You have to go through. Parents. I was a foster parent. Also ended up going halfway around the world. American one had to have notarize documents that that I was straight. Various people, and I it from China and many countries will not allow you to adopt. Your eljay. I know. That in adoption in our country. The only children that would be pretty for adoption to anyone would be children who have lost payroll protections or rights to foster care. And those children also special care. Special training Minicabs that children that like the baby I wanna baby. You know? And if you choose if you choose Christian agency, well, guess what? The. As a Christian. And take the parents from. And a. Man woman family. That's what she's going to choose if she single woman. That's right. But usually they would be cancelled and Toews agency does days are guidelines for parents, prospective parents. Then you know, like you're selling. A child, and there are agencies that are the. Your jewish. You may want to eight Jewish Christian family, and it's up to the end of our father to make those decisions. It's not like you hand over your child. And that's it. He makes those decisions. In a a life ban for that child. They're making that because they think that you cannot share the job. You cannot meet has some. That's where there are many children. That are got eight people are wanting to adopt, especially children in this country in foreign countries. So when you when you see this legislation your initial reaction to it was what? Screaming about that. Okay. Baker. To let us do what we want. Follows the rules that you have within your organization. It would be like having a pagan wedding, just sanctuary whether being drums and everything else. That's what they're saying. They're saying everything has to be able to do what we want. But we don't have to like you. A birth. Mother is going to choose an agency. An attorney. Choose an agency that matches up in what she wants. It's really not. I mean, it's just the whole thing of we want. We want faming me. I I write I write and no one else is right for the late matter that. That they can't chew the cows. It belongs to the one religion that child because they have like family. They can't override that agency. That just isn't that happened? Children are not something cheese. Tremendous. Well, but in here's here's the thing. Here's the thing. I would say because and this is the reason why I was I really wanted to hear you out because you've actually done this. I've got multiple people who are gay and lesbian that are writing in right now saying why do you think that I should not be able to do the exact same thing that you're talking about? You're judging me based on my sexual orientation, which has nothing to do with how I would care for a child. Not there. Plenty of agencies that have no religious restrictions ever. It's just that. That's what looks like if it protect those those. Not that many that are religious in nature. There's only two I know of it have religious. Things going up and the other one's like religion. But I mean there are plenty of. Religious organization for international. The guest won the countries of origin. Have the wrong rule? I mean bar. People from China's Angelina Jolie. Openly with someone. She was not very jape. China has strict role that you want a child that hasn't and you have. Do you have to be nice with a child with the same handicapping conditions that you have say you only have one. It you have been cut off. Isn't. I mean, that's that's the way it is. And frozen implies. They're not keeping people from adopting. I have to be adopted our production. I don't care who gets them. They just want a mom or dad or two moms or dads or black. They don't care. They won't care. Unfortunately, there thirteen fourteen years have been system. But they're waiting, and it doesn't matter who it not stands. I just wanna home. With their trade nights and said, well, I mean that's their three things. They don't care anything else. And they're all these children. But the thing is is that you had this whole law. You know, the screening of it and everything is people who want to be able to go. And say, I'm like this and you have to deal with it. When you go down three organization, it have the same chance at adopting a child that anyone else has. I appreciate the phone call. Thank you, ma'am. Nice to talk to you five three five nine seven three to five three five nine seven three to John you're on the Ben Ferguson show. Nice to have you high. John. Go ahead. All right for some reason..

"Common. Actually, I mean, you know, I really relate to all the things that you're saying, and I'm curious about what it was like doing that work. You know, you're talking about it being conservative Christian company or agency that you were working through and that you were out there and. What was that like with your co workers during that time? Who you know, when I when I started the the group home stuff when I was doing that for the Christian agency was interesting because they I got hired at a time that the agency was in big trouble from the state, and they for what reason I they hit. There have been some they they were doing some things that were I think I think someone did in been hurt or something. Anyway, they the state came in and they weren't really tampering down them. And they were they had contract with this company to open the first medically. Fragile group home for. Developmentally disabled children in. So I got to go to five institutions in handpicked five kids to move into the community and into this beautiful group home that this agency had had had built. And I I remember going into the first interview. And there was this whole board of the Christian group in its fundamentalists Dutch Christian organization in the Lynden Washington area. And the woman from the state was there, and I just looked at her and she smiled, and I thought okay, I think I got this. I think I think we're okay. And we we never it was never over of discussion within the Ord members or anything, but they clearly knew in ended up actually the nine move to Washington with hiring her and in order to do. So later that they were comfortable she interviewed with them loan. And then they hired us in six months later. You know, we weren't when all these accolades everything, but then later, the they. There were some more can proprieties happening within the organization in the executive director was asked to leave in. Then I was promoted to the executive director. And it was interesting because that was in the in the actual community up in up in London and. In the the number two in command up there. He should've been the one he was from the community. He should have been the one that was appointed. But the former executive director had been keeping him. So in the dark that he didn't know how to to kind of run things my agreement was that I would do it for a year. But with this guy at my side, and then I would hand it off to him. And so that's what I did. We're is that geographically. It's in northern Washington. It's almost to Canada, and I'm imagining that's also I was very recently. I mean within the last three weeks driving between Portland Seattle. And so you, you know, for me I've done and I've done the drive a bunch of times, I've even driven and I've driven north of Seattle like two. Yeah. Essentially almost the border, and you know, it's it's I think a lot of folks that maybe are less familiar with that area. We Portland Seattle. I think you know, I certainly have the impression it's like exported to me that that that those are very progressive areas, but just outside is extremely number one rural and pretty isolated partially sometimes just because of like nature, actually, there's blurs mountains or like, you know, coastline. It's a rugged. And then also it's just not very densely populated. So pretty pretty. Read yet and interest driving between Portland and Seattle a couple of weeks ago. There was like so many political signs I've done this before but not this close to an election..
