A group of Catholic priests has come out in support of a bill that would require all adoption agencies that receive federal funding to place children with same-sex couples.

The Association of U.S. Catholic Priests, which describes itself as “a pastoral voice of compassion, hope and joy in our pilgrim church and world,” has expressed support for the "Every Child Deserves a Family Act."

According to the Lepanto Institute, a research and education organization dedicated to preserving the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church, the bill “would effectively shut down the adoption services of Catholic Charities by mandating homosexual adoptions as well as potentially adopting children to couples of any belief system, including active satanists.”

In its March 28 E-Bulletin, the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests touted the Every Child Deserves a Family Act as “a bill promoting the best interests of children in the foster care and adoption system by ending discrimination against LGBTQ+ and religious minority youth, foster parents, and families.” It encourages readers to sign onto a letter urging members of Congress to support the measure.
