(CHRISTIAN HEADLINE) – According to a new federal lawsuit, a New York state agency violated a Christian adoption agency’s constitutional rights by opening an investigation and then harassing it about its beliefs on marriage.
The lawsuit alleges that the New York State Division of Human Rights opened the investigation into New Hope Family Services even though New Hope has enjoyed multiple court victories in recent months. New Hope is privately funded and does not accept government money.
Founded in 1958, the mission of New Hope is to “be Christ’s hands extended to offer hope and help to people with pregnancy, parenting, adoption, or post-abortion needs” throughout the area, the suit says. Its adoption ministry primarily focuses on placing infants and very young children into homes.
