There are a few things about the post regarding this I would like to touch on. For the record... this happened in 2006, it is old news, however I would like to throw out a question...
A lot of people made statements about them (Catholic Charities of Boston), and how they should have the right to deny gay couples from adopting if it's against their faith. However would you still have that same opinion if they HAD allowed gay couples to adopted and later in 2004, changed their policy to deny them (gay couples) from adopting because of the Vatican's public statement from the year before? Would you still feel the same if they admitted that there is a chance for exemption based on religion, if filed through the government?

Why does it matter? What's done is done. And yes, I did know all about this, and I still say that private, religious organizations also have rights. If they have decided that it's against their belief to allow gay couples to adopt, then they have every right to retract that policy. Many organizations change their policies over time, this instance is really no different than that. The only difference is that they are basically making a statement against homosexuality, and that ruffles feathers all over the place. If it had been over a different issue, we wouldn't even be having this discussion...

This is their decision to make. Individual people made the call to adopt the children then they changed their policy.
