The way in which the world views spirituality is shifting. Ruling bodies are no longer cowering to the oppressive powers of mainstream religion. The public is no longer permitting the intolerances of Dark Age thought and reason. Go figure -- the Traditionalists aren't pleased.
They see this ruling -- a couple being denied future foster children because of their views against homosexuality -- as some ominous ban across the expanse of Christianity everywhere. Truthfully, and rightfully, the judges were merely ensuring that a child is able grow and flourish in a supportive environment.
A young and impressionable mind needs to be raised with self esteem and confidence. Children need to be nutured and accepted for who they are inside. And to ultimately walk into society loving themselves and sharing their compassion via an avenue of mutual respect and tolerance for the merging diversity we are all confronted with when we walk outside our doors.
