No pork, no foster kids
A Hyattsville-based company is defending its decision to deny a Baltimore woman to become a foster parent because she doesn't allow pork in her house, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Contemporary Family Services, which is authorized by Maryland to place foster children with families, said Tashima Crudup — a practicing Muslim — was unyielding in her stance, which might suggest she could be intractable in other issues involving children.
Crudup contacted the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed a complaint on her behalf with the Baltimore City Community Relations Commission, alleging religious discrimination. The commission is investigating.
