Christian Charity Agrees to Work With LGBT Couples
Bethany Christian Services of Greater Delaware Valley has confirmed that it changed its policies to allow staff to work with same-sex couples interested in fostering children in order to resume its foster work with the city of Philadelphia.
In a statement shared with The Christian Post on Friday, the global adoption and foster agency explained that it has altered its policies to abide by the city's nondiscrimination law that prevents discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
The move comes after the city stopped placing foster children with Bethany Christian Services and Catholic Social Services of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia after learning that the organizations enforced policies that prohibit the placement of children with same-sex couples....
It is interesting to note that the American Psychologist Association's official manual used to include homosexuality as a mental illness. It was removed after strong lobbying by homosexual groups. Instead, today, if you buy too many things on sale, they will call you a 'hoarder' and send you for psychological counseling, now that 'hoarding' is in that manual.

Billions of secular reprobates are doing 'nice' things every day. Billions of religious reprobates are doing 'nice' things in society. Like this, quote. "Christian services" unquote, 'AND' the Roman Catholics. But 'works' by man does not impress God.
But all reprobates are going to hell, by God's decree. Whether they play at religion or not.
This is a fallen world where the majority of mankind is bound for hell and deserves to go there. The do gooders amongst them can support Sodom and Gomorrah or do nice things in the community and the world will pat them on the head and congratulate them. So what?
The Remnant do NOT compromise with sodomites BECAUSE God commands not to. Equally - God does NOT compromise with idolaters such as the Romish 'abomination.' "And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15.
"The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind? Prov 21:27
You have the Roman Catholic organisation, and the Protestant organisation, and then there is the Church.
And the Church always wins, because it is made up of God's elect; and God's elect are saved by grace and kept by grace; they neither compromise nor return to the world. Compromisers and permanent backsliders are to be found in the parable of the sower. As also are the true Christians, who bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixtyfold, and some an hundredfold.

With many so called churches such as Episcopalian, Anglican, PCUSA, United Methodist, Pentecostal, Aliance of Baptists, United church of Christ etc etc etc....
It is not surprising that quote, 'christians' unquote working in the community are ditching the Bible to keep the sin also.
By accepting Sodomite behaviour they are denying repentance of sin - Thus denying salvation.
This is the voice of the anti-christ in these 'churches?'
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness,"
Amen, Brothers. This just emboldens our adversaries to press harder to abolish Biblical standards. But it's very possible that the children who are being taken away from their parents are taken unjustly. This is a growing problem in the US, and one that groups like parentalrights.org are trying to alleviate. So it seems Bethany compromised a long time ago, but in the shadows. Now that compromise is more visible.
When "Christians" bow down to Baal, it convinces non-Christians that we don't really believe what we say we do and emboldens them to make ever-increasing demands. "Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross!"
