There are many things people have to agree to when they foster children. The children being cared for aren't the foster parents children, in essence these children are the states children the the state (government) gets to make the rules. There might be many things that conflict with how you'd actually raise your own children. T
he government wants to make sure the foster parents aren't conveying negative information about homosexuality. This isn't about being a christian. If this same couple were Jewish or practicing Islam they would be subject to the same rules. Hopefully the couple isn't being singled out for being christian and all applicants are asked the same questions and held to identical standards.
