Whereas Canada is a country without a state religion. In Canada we tolerate an enormous variety of religious traditions and backgrounds.
And whereas we recognize that children are better off in loving and supportive families than being parented by the state. In particular we recognize that traditional Christian families are more than capable of raising happy and well-adjusted children.
And whereas a couple in Edmonton were denied the right to adopt a child, despite being found to be capable and loving potential parents, simply because their firmly held religious beliefs as Christians meant that they disapproved of homosexuality,
I call upon the government of Alberta to take steps to protect the religious rights of potential foster and adoptive parents.
