Jesus: no gay adoptions

EVERY time I think that the Catholic Church cannot possibly disgust me any more, they go and do something else to prove me wrong.

In approximately three months, the Equality Act, legislation which makes it a crime to discriminate based on sexual preference comes into effect in the UK. Under these laws, Catholic adoption agencies can be prosecuted, as they currently do not allow gay couples to adopt.

Stevie Wonder could have seen this one coming.

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, head of the Catholic church in England and Wales, has already said that the adoption agencies will close if they are forced to place children with gay couples.

I really am at a loss for words on this one, and I have to wonder whose interests these people are serving. One thing is for sure, it's definitely not those of the children.

So much for Matthew 19:14.
