IL Catholic dioceses: Courting right to discriminate, right to have new talking points for future ad campaigns

by Jeremy Hooper

Three Catholic dioceses hope a court will let them have their cake (i.e. state subsidies) while telling the state's non-discrimination policies to "eat it!" too:

Three Catholic dioceses in Illinois have filed suit to block enforcement of a new law that would require adoption agencies to give equal treatment to homosexual couples.

The dioceses of Peoria, Springfield, and Joliet joined in the lawsuit, on behalf of their offices of Catholic Charities, which currently handle more than 15% of all adoptions in Illinois. Catholic Charities officials say that, since they will not violate Church teachings that condemn placing children with homosexual couples, the new rule forces them to stop providing adoption services.

Won't someone please think of the children?
