The Boston Archdiocese's Catholic Charities said Friday it would stop providing adoption services because state law requires them to consider gays and lesbians as parents.
The state's four Catholic bishops said earlier this month that the law threatens the church's religious freedom by forcing it to do something it considers immoral.
The state passed a law that said anyone providing adoption services would have to treat same-sex couples the same as heterosexual couples. This would be in violation of Church teaching. Good for Catholic Charities for standing up for the Truth, rather than giving in to the culture of the times.
