UK tribunal rules diocesan agency must accept homosexual adoption
June 03, 2009
The Charity Tribunal has ruled that Catholic Care-- the Diocese of Leeds’s adoption agency-- must cooperate with homosexual couples who wish to adopt children. “If the charity now sticks to Church policy and continues to follow its ‘heterosexuals only’ policy it could lose its charity status and public funding,” the Daily Telegraph notes. “ It might also face discrimination claims by same-sex couples it has turned away in the past.”
