Scotland: on appeal, Catholic adoption agency retains charitable status
Catholic World News - January 31, 2014
A Catholic adoption agency in Scotland has won an appeal to retain its charitable status, which was endangered when the agency declined to follow new regulations requiring equal treatment for homosexual couples.
St. Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society, which provides adoption services only for married couples, had been charged with violation of the Equality Act of 2010, and its charitable status had been revoked by the Charity Regulator in January of last year. But the Charity Appeal Panel upheld the agency’s appeal.
