British diocese will subsidize agency arranging same-sex adoptions

December 04, 2008

The Diocese of Southwark, England, plans to continue offering financial support to an adoption agency that has fallen into line with government regulations insisting on non-discriminatory treatment of same-sex couples. When the new regulations came into force, the Catholic Children's Society changed its name to the Cabrini Children's Society and dropped its formal affiliation with the Church. A spokesman for the Southwark diocese said that funds collected in Catholic churches would be used by the agency for charitable services other than same-sex adoptions.
