PhoboQuotable – Ignacio Barreiro

“The Catholic Church has often affirmed that here is no ‘right to adopt.’ It is a privilege and responsibility to be granted only to those married couples who can demonstrate, through their loving, permanent commitment to each other, their ability to make a lifetime commitment to raising a child in the best environment possible. May God bless these shepherds, their flocks and their work, and continue to grant them strength as they weather the storm which will certainly follow their bold leadership. We gladly welcome this clear, public stance for truth, religious freedom, and for children.” – Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro, congratulating Illinois’ Catholic bishops for their lawsuit demanding exemption from anti-discrimination laws.
