Church allowed to be Church

Boston, Apr. 17 ( - Catholic adoption agencies in Massachusetts will not face legal penalties for refusing to place children with same-sex couples, the Boston Globe has reported.

On March 10, the Boston office of Catholic Charities announced that it was dropping adoption services, in order to avoid a direct conflict between Catholic social teaching-- which sees adoption by same-sex couples as a form of violence against children-- and Massachusetts regulations, which forbid adoption agencies from discriminating against homosexuals. But Catholic agencies in the other 3 Catholic dioceses of Massachusetts-- Worcester, Fall River, and Springfield-- will continue to provide adoption services.
