Texas Joins 18 Other States Opposing Proposed Rule Disqualifying Christians from Becoming Foster Parents

The Texas attorney general has signed onto a letter opposing a proposed rule from the Biden administration that would prevent Christians who do not affirm LGBTQ lifestyles from becoming foster parents.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has joined 18 other state attorneys general in opposing a recently proposed rule that would prevent Christians who do not affirm LGBTQ lifestyles from becoming foster parents.

The rule—proposed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on September 28—is called the “Safe and Appropriate Foster Care Placement Requirements for Titles IV-E and IV-B.”

The summary of the rule proposes that guidelines be established for foster parents to follow, specifically concerning children who identify as LGBTQ.

According to The Gateway Pundit, the American Family Association said that “Those who do not ‘affirm’ the LGBTQ rules because of their Christian faith will be deemed ‘unsafe’ by the Biden administration and ultimately rejected as foster parent candidates.”
