This Must Stop Now!
Riss Flex reports on a Florida law that exempts foster homes from state oversight because of religion. She says Florida is one of five states, where if a home is considered faith-based, no one is required by law to visit and document possible allegations of abuse.
Flex was alerted to the law in light of the recent case, where nine boys were removed from a Clearwater foster home because of allegations that were sexual in nature. Alarmingly, Flex says, the religious exemption still exists! Here’s her report.
