Now it’s become so much more difficult to arrange adoption we have decided to have a whinge. The Catholic Church has done much good work in the area of adoption but is now to be forced to consider same sex couples equally. It’s completely against their beliefs and I would argue they should not be forced to do this.
We do NOT support adoption by gay couples although I have nothing against same sex couples per se. Neither do I have a problem with lesbians or homosexuals generally, indeed I have met them socially and worked with them too. I have never had any issues with this.
However, in my opinion, children should be adopted by straight couples unless the child can be shown to have the same sexual orientation as the adopting couple. I don’t think there’s a test for that is there?
I have no problem with an adoption agency favouring same sex couples over straight couples but I DO have a problem with not having the choice to exercise my beliefs. If I worked in an adoption agency I would favour straight couples every time.
So, it’s probably just as well I have no say in the matter because I would tell the powers that be to get stuffed…
