My partner and I raised a child who would have spent his entire adolescence in an institution if we hadn’t stepped in.

Same-sex couples do that kind of thing a LOT, according to the Williams Institution, at far higher rates than mixed-sex couples.

Legislating against the freedom of LGBTQ people to foster and adopt isn’t JUST a perversion of religious liberty as you so cogently and clearly point out, it surely also goes against the very heart of Christian teachings.

Can you imagine the Jesus of the Bible telling a child they couldn’t be adopted out of an institution and into a loving family?

I can’t.
