I guess they should just have their own natural born children if neither is sterile.

The fight for religious liberty has been ongoing for decades. The Colorado baker case just shows that radical Christian hating bureaucrats need to refrain from overt expressions of their bigotry while they abrogate freedom of religion.

Despite the fact the baker offered any of his products besides a wedding cake to the same sex couple the Colorado bureaucrats detected "discrimination". There is no room for the free exercise of religion when it interferes with the radical agenda of State supremacy.

The God I worship loves all men. However, he also defines and condemns sinful acts, such as homosexuality. If you and I are talking about the same God, I would suggest you read more of his word and understand where this Christian baker is coming from.

The thing is the Christian baker did not refuse service to the homosexual couple except for participating in their wedding. The baker's tolerance was greeted with profanity and picketing of his shop by the offended.

Nine states have laws allowing state-funded, religiously affiliated adoption agencies to refuse to place children with gay people based on religious beliefs. Republican-governed Kansas and Oklahoma passed such laws this year. Alabama, Mississippi, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia all have similar laws.
I expect it's going to come down to "state-funded".
If they want to discriminate, then they shouldn't be sanctioned by the state with state funds.

Should come down to "Religious groups". Religious protection and exemptions.
States help fund various religious orgs benevolent community assistance programs. helping orphaned children is just one.
the financial aid doesn't mean all policies and practices of all assistance groups funded are "state sanctioned" but that they are allowed the freedom of honoring religious distinctives in their work.

I know that's a concepts that sets some people's hair on fire who simply want everyone to bow to their "modern" view of the world.
But if they were truly tolerant and had more concern for the majority of orphans than they do for their own desires here, then they'd back off the Religious orgs larger attempts to help.
