Preventing child abuse

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 31, 2003

Today's Vatican document reads: "Allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such unions would actually mean doing violence to these children..."

So let's say-- just hypothetically, you understand-- that Church leaders were putting together a Charter for the Protection of Children. Wouldn't it be essential to include a clear statement of opposition to homosexual adoption, and a pastoral plan to curtail that practice?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
