Southern Baptists are very upset about yesterday’s move by a major evangelical adoption group to begin serving LGBT couples.
Southern Baptist president Al Mohler:
The moral revolutionaries are now demanding that every single individual in this society every single institution, every single school, every single religious denomination, every single adoption, and foster care agency, must pivot.
In this case, that means capitulation, it means absolute surrender to the demands of the LGBTQ community, and now we’re just talking about generalized the political left in the United States.
We are now seeing a head-on collision between organizations like Bethany Christian services that had been very committed to a Christian understanding of marriage and the family and human sexuality and gender … and the government.
Bethany Christian Services Will Now Help LGBTQ Parents Adopt Children – The New York Times /Very disappointing capitulation to cultural pressure. Children need a dad and a mom in a healthy, biblical home. God’s Word is clear. https://t.co/ooKca5B58W

Bethany Christian Services should not have to choose between holding to their deeply held religious convictions and serving children and families. No government should tell any ministry how to run their ministry, let alone violate deeply held biblical principles.
