What Happened To Compassionate Conservatism?

You’ll recall that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced the state would no longer fund adoption agencies that discriminate against same sex couples and LGBTQ individuals based on religious principles.

The gerrymandered Republican majority passed a law in 2015 that allowed adoption agencies to discriminate.

Nessel, though, found a way to neutralize that law.

A same sex couple filed a lawsuit against the GOP bill, but Nessel reached a settlement in which the couple agreed to drop the lawsuit if Michigan agreed to follow nondiscrimination policies with its foster and adoption agencies. Additionally, Michigan would terminate contracts with those agencies that continue to discriminate.

It was only a matter of time before anti-Christian right wing groups would fight back. And they are asking the courts to allow them to ban same sex couples from adopting a child.

Of course, these groups can’t cite one part in The Bible where Jesus ever announced that same sex couples couldn’t raise a child.

But I digress.

Mary Boo of the North American Council on Adoptable Children writes in The Detroit News that many children will suffer if these right wing groups get their way:

There are more than 12,000 children in foster care in Michigan and not nearly enough families to care for them. These children cannot afford to have families who are willing and able to open their hearts and homes to a child turned away based on a religious litmus test.

Shrinking the already insufficient pool of available families means more children are placed in group homes rather than families, separated from siblings, and age out of foster care without finding a forever family, increasing the risks of unemployment, depression, poverty, homelessness, incarceration, and early parenthood.

There are loving parents who ready to care for these children. Christians are supposed to care about children, so I’m told. Yet, these “Christians” are trying to make it harder for kids to find parents who will provide support, shelter, and stability.

But that’s the point.

As we’ve seen with the border crisis, the right wing enjoys seeing kids suffer in cages.

Cruelty is the point.

And Michigan Republicans enjoy being part of this cruelty.
