For me this is a non issue and RIGHT because I am on record as saying that any religion that gets involved in a PUBLIC service or business it is NOT allowed to discriminate because those things have nothing to do with RELIGION.
now again I didnt read the article so I may have it wrong but for example St. Micheal's Hospital has no right to not allow me spouse visitation rights because I only have a legal marriage and not a religious one. Or not treat me in the ER if Im gay
If a church opens up a foster placement agency which has to run by rules of the fed/state gov it has to play by ALL the rules since foster placement is not a religious matter.
if they want to be involved in these NON religious matter they must play by the rules or give up their privileges
now personally, if Im guessing right, they should have been able to keep their status IMO but had to be open to ALL public, forfeit their public option/profits from their property or give up that business.
just my two cents
