No child should have to be raised in a place filled with hate.
A Christian couple in London has been stripped of their rights to act as foster parents because of their strong disapproval of homosexuality.
Eunice and Owen Johns, aged 62 and 65-years old, have opened their home to foster children since the 1990s. However, a few years back, a social worker noted in their report that the couple had "strong views" against homosexuality and weren't afraid to express them. Today, judges of the Royal Courts of Justice in London ruled that " laws protecting gays from discrimination take precedence over the couple's religious beliefs."
No word yet if the couple plan on fighting the ruling, but Eunice did tell sources that she was "extremely distressed" by the decision, as are many Christian groups in the area.
Yeah, well we're extremely distressed by the idea of some poor, innocent kid being welcomed into your home, only to be berated for being exactly who they were born to be.
Good call, RCJ!
