Mandeville, LA – The State of Illinois To Holy Mary, MOTHER of God: Drop Dead! – That meteor God nudged out of its slumber between Mars and Jupiter is picking up speed. The State of Illinois has just ordered that children may not be placed into foster care with parents who believe the wife is a female and the husband is a male. “Mitter Chur, you’re just making that up for shock-jock value!” Am I? The State’s new policy states that Illinois “will not tolerate exposing LGBTQ children and youth to staff/providers who are not supportive of children and youths’ right to self-determination of sexual/gender identity.” As Mary Rice Hasson points out, this insanity and dressed-up excuse for child abuse even applies to the nearest of kin of the children in question! You just cannot make this stuff up folks, madness and blasphemy are now one and the same. Witness: “In no instance should LGBTQ children/youth be placed with a non-affirming caregiver who is opposed to sexual orientations that differ from the caregiver’s own. Nor should LGBTQ children and youth be placed with caregivers who are unwilling/unable to support children and youth whose gender identity or gender expression differs from traditional expectation…If a caregiver is found to be non-affirming or is otherwise in violation of the nondiscrimination requirements in Appendix K, the youth’s DCFS caseworker must take immediate action to intervene and take appropriate corrective action and contact the LGBTQ Coordinator.” God help us and please, send Illinois the Grace to rebuke itself or join the Candian Union.
