‘Married’ lesbians sue U.S. Catholic bishops over rejection as foster ‘parents’

Catholic Charities of Fort Worth, Texas, turned down two “Married Lesbians” for foster parenting because their homosexual lifestyle gave children no father.

The lesbians are now suing Catholic hierarchs and the federal government for discrimination.

Marouf, a Muslim, and Esplin, a Mormon, also accuse Catholic Charities of Fort Worth’s Chairman of the Board Executive Committee, Donna Springer, of “insulting” and hurting their feelings by saying only heterosexual married couples who “mirror the Holy Family” qualify.

Springer and Catholic Charities deny the conversation but admit their director of child welfare talked with the lesbians on the phone.
