Ryan Bomberger: ‘As an adoptee and adoptive father, I will continue to fight against those who put vulnerable children at more risk. Adoption exists to serve the interests of the child, not special interests’

WASHINGTON D.C. — Christian conservatives across the country are celebrating a recent New York ruling stating that Christian adoption agency New Hope Family Services cannot be shut down because it refused to place children with same-sex couples and unmarried cohabitating heterosexual couples. The ruling is a great step in the protection of the First Amendment and freedom of religion. A representative for New Hope called the ruling “great news for children waiting to be adopted and for the parents partnering with New Hope Family Services to provide loving, stable homes.”
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.radiance.life), is an adoptee and an adoptive father. A proud advocate that there is no such thing as an unwanted child, Bomberger is passionate about the powerful influence that a loving and stable home is for children looking for their forever families.
Bomberger stated, “The Constitution, once again, prevails in a case where the state of New York was denying fundamental guaranteed rights to a faith-based adoption agency. A federal judge rightly ruled that New Hope Family Services cannot be shut down by the state because of who they are (Christians) and whom they love (vulnerable children who need a mom and dad). Pro-abortion, pro-prostitution LGBT groups such as the ACLU and Lambda Legal have aggressively tried to shut down faith-based child welfare providers that don’t bow to their ideology. The majority of adoption providers and foster care services do same-sex placements. Despite this, LGBT powerhouse law firms relentlessly attack faith-based agencies. They’ve succeeded in closing down Catholic Charities in several states. ‘Evangelical’ Bethany Christian Services immediately caved to their demands without a fight. All of this only hurts vulnerable children and discourages birthparents who make a loving plan of adoption. As an adoptee and adoptive father, I will continue to fight against those who put vulnerable children at more risk. Adoption exists to serve the interests of the child, not special interests.”
