The Saint Damien Advocates was founded on November 1, 2011, on Oahu in Waianae, Hawaii,
the day after the "Every Child Deserves a Family Act" of 2011 was introduced into the U.S. Senate
by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a democratic U.S. Senator from the East Coast, New York.
A copy of the same named bill was introduced in U.S. House of Representatives on May 3, 2011
by Pete Stark, a democratic member of the House of Representatives from Northern California.
These 'anti-discrimination' bills on adoption and foster care for gay and lesbian couples would,
if made into law, effectively force closure of all Catholic Charities foster care and adoption
in the United States of America, as Catholic Charities in adhering to religious teachings
of the Roman Catholic Church, will not place foster or adoptive children with gay or lesbian-
homosexual couples. In the District of Columbia (D.C.) and Massachusetts state laws already
have terminated Catholic Charities foster care and adoptions. Currently in Illinois, there is a fight,
as to whether or not Catholic Charities, existent there since 1921,
will be allowed to continue these charitable works.
