In response, Bill Smithwick, the president of Baptist Homes, explained the agency's reasoning as follows: "To employ a person who is openly homosexual, living in an adulterous situation, is a chronic abuser of alcohol or drugs, etc., does not represent the Judeo-Christian values which are intrinsic to our mission."
"We've made it clear as to the values we're looking for in the staff we hire," said Smithwick. In general, he explained, leadership positions at the agency must be filled by Baptists.
"Our mission is to provide care and hope for hurting families through Christ-centered ministries," Smithwick has said. "I want this mission to permeate our agency like the very blood through our bodies. I want to provide Christian support to every child, staff member and foster parent. If forced to change, Smithwick told me, Baptist Homes would rather stop contracting with the government.
