A Response to "Bishops say rules on gay parents limit freedom of religion"

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

The test of a religion is its ability to speak its truth without denying another's. This is a matter of civil rights which are the very foundation of the Catholic Church's place in our democracy. The decision to jettison Catholic Charities' adoption services rather than comply with US nondiscrimination laws is a statement of principle. But I find the decision repugnant.
