Catholic church in Washington DC ending foster care due to gay marriage law

In yet another instance of the consequences of redefining the family, the Catholic Archdiocese in Washinton, DC has been forced to discontinue its foster program, as it would be at legal risk for not placing children with homosexual "married" couples.

According to the new DC gay marriage law (which goes into effect on March 2nd), outside organizations that contract to provide services have to recognize gay marriages in Washington.  In other words, the religious rights of Christian groups that don't recognize homosexual "marriage" as being legitimate are being violated due to their faith. 

And of course this is in addition to the impact on the children that are helped by Christian (as opposed to state run) foster care programs, such as this one which has been around for over 80 years.

Come to think of it, this is probably not an "unintended" consequence.
