Foster Care Non-Discrimination Act | chronicleofsocialchange

Foster Care Non-Discrimination Act | chronicleofsocialchange:
"In 2003, California passed the Foster Care Non-Discrimination Act that prohibits the harassment of youths on the basis of actual or perceived race, ethnic group, national origin, religion, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation or gender identification."

Okay, that's fine.  There is probably nothing wrong with that.

But, next they want forced indoctrination...

AB 1856, a bill that would require culturally sensitive training for foster care providers on issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender children and teens (LGBT).
Authored by Rep. Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) and sponsored the largest LGBT advocacy group in the state, Equality California, the bill would require caretakers to complete 40 hours of classroom instruction and best practices for providing adequate care for LGBT youths in foster care."
And they want foster care families to forgo the choice of children that they can care for...

"Some foster care agencies, Evans said, have forms where potential foster care parents can indicate if they’re not willing to care for an LGBT youth.

“Why are we accepting foster parents who say I don’t want or will not take of an LGBT [children]? How we can allow that to be?” she said."

This is to me an exceptionally improper and unConstitutional role for the government.  Foster parents ought to be able to specify if they welcome Sightless, Hearing impaired, Handicapped, Jewish, Christian, Catholic, Moslem, White, Black, East Indian, West Indian, American Indian, French, Italian-, Asian-, Irish-, Somalian-heritage, or any other cultural or individual attribute they favor and orientation that they wish to inculcate, promulgate, and espouse.  That is their choice to minister to and support the cultural identities they value.   A law like this says, if you want to help foster children you have no right to pick and choose your legal dependents, you must accept whatever child the state assigns.
