Catholic Charities of DC transfers out foster care over gay marriage law
As a result of Washington D.C.’s new “gay marriage” law, Catholic Charities its entire foster care program in Washington to the National Center for Children and Families.
Catholic Charities, which receives $20 million from the District of Columbia, has said that the new law could make it impossible for Catholic Charities to remain a city contractor out of “conflict of interest” – because of the teachings of the Church.
