Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, a Republican, on Friday signed a bill into law that allows faith-based adoption and foster care agencies to refuse to place children with gay and lesbian couples. Senate Bill 284 forces the Kansas Department for Children and Families to include foster and adoption agencies, including those that receive public funds, in its programs even if they refuse to place children in LGBT homes.

The bill will actually cause fewer kids to find loving homes, because they are cutting out a major group of adopters--gays are also far more likely to adopt kids who are older, are disabled, or are ethnically different. Hetero couples tend to look for perfect white babies.
Doyle wrote:
"Catholic Charities and other adoption agencies are key to the fabric of our communities," Colyer said. "I look forward to signing this bill because it increases the opportunities for needy children to find loving homes."

Last week, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, signed a similar measure.
