The Illinois Department of Child and Family Services has instituted new procedures that will severely limit the free speech and religious liberty rights of any volunteers, staff members, caseworkers, and foster families who still believe in a binary definition of gender—that there are only two sexes, male and female.
Under the new procedures, children are not only encouraged to explore their sexual orientation and gender identity, but no one can question a child’s exploration and, certainly, no one can recommend to a confused child a biblical and scientific perspective on the sexes.
Children will not be placed with potential caregivers who fail to affirm the LGBT pro-transgender agenda no matter how competent and loving they may be. In addition, employees run the risk of termination if their beliefs differ from the LGBT standard.
