British Ruling Against Anti-Gay Foster Parents

Here is an article about a religious couple who is no longer allowed to be foster parents because of their religious views on homosexuality.'t_Be_Foster_Parents

There is a problem here. Because, we are trying to achieve a greater equality. We want more equal opportunity. But this ruling only says that a government gets to dictate what individual parents can believe. Taking away the chance for religious people to be foster parents is not helping the LGBT community in any way.

What do you think about the ruling? Post your comments.

  1. I agree that this is a terrible decision. As sad as they are, I'm glad to live in a country where even the Westboro Baptist people, whose opinions are the most vile of any publicly defended opinions, have the right to speak their mind. Changing minds has to happen by persuasion and long-suffering, not by force. I'm afraid that a lot of Europe (and Canada) don't have the same idea. I'm not a "Ra ra go America!" unconditional patriot by any means, but this is one area where I think the US stance is by far superior to ones that try to silence religions and others who speak badly about gays (or adulterers or sabbath-breakers or whoever they want to preach against).
