Once A Catholic
Are Catholics an ethnic group? Most obviously, no. But the Irish are. The Italians are. The Poles are. Arguably, the Recusants are. And so on. So, for fostering or adoption purposes, is there not a case for insisting that a child be placed with new parents who share his or her Irish Catholic, or Italian Catholic, or Polish Catholic, or Recusant Catholic, or whatever other sort of Catholic cultural background?
