Resources for Including People With Developmental Disabilities in Religion: Adam's Pew Project

I wanted to share a site with lots of links to resources for including people with developmental disabilities in religion. Earlier I wrote about Adam Race, an autistic boy whose church obtained a restraining order to prevent him from attending Mass due to his autism-related behavior. Adam's family has created a website called Project Adam's Pew. The website includes this page of great resources. Many of the links are specific to Catholicism, but there are others for Christianity, Judaism, and general spirituality as well.

Wow. I can't believe that a church (or any religious institution for that matter) would dare to discriminate against the disabled. My jaw nearly hit the ground reading that. Good for Adam's family. Such hypocracy (on the part of their church that is).
