WASHINGTON D.C. — Catholic Charities ended its foster care and adoption programs due to the district’s impending gay marriage equality law, according to 365gay.com.

A philanthropic division under the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, Catholic Charities stated the new law would go against the church’s beliefs, according to its Web site.

The adoptive and foster families currently enrolled with Catholic Charities will be transitioned to the National Center for Children and Families (NCCF), according to its Web site.
