Prominent evangelical Christians are urging churchgoers to strongly consider adoption or foster care, not just out of kindness or biblical calling but also to answer criticism that their movement, while condemning abortion and same-sex adoption, doesn't do enough for children without parents.
With backing from Focus on the Family and best-selling author Rick Warren, the effort to promote "orphan care" among the nation's estimated 65 million evangelicals could drastically reduce foster care rolls if successful.
This is a rare thing for me to say about the Religious Right, but in this case they are absolutely correct. I've long pointed out that they seem to care more for the unborn than the born, when they usually just whine about "welfare sows" and the like. I hope they follow through on this promise.
