Gay “Rights” In Place of Everything: er, . . . right?

Sigh . . .

From Catholic Culture we learn that “British court says gay rights trump religious rights.”

“The High Court in London has affirmed the decision of a local council to bar a Christian couple from acting as foster parents because of their opposition to homosexuality.  Owen and Eunice Johns, who are Pentecostals, were informed by the Derby City Council that they could not be foster parents because their strict opposition to homosexual acts made them unsuitable guardians for children. The couple challenged the ruling, saying that it was an instance of religious discrimination.  The High Court rejected the couple’s challenge, saying that the laws against discrimination on the basis of sexual preference “should take precedence” over concerns against religious discrimination.” (Pathetic relativism)

The UK Christian Legal Centre responded:

“The organisation said the judges had effectively ruled “homosexual ‘rights’ trump freedom of conscience in the UK.  The judges had stated that “biblical Christian beliefs may be ‘inimical’ to children, and implicitly upheld an Equalities and Human Rights Commission (ECHC) submission that children risk being ‘infected’ by Christian moral beliefs”.  The CLC said the judgment summary “sends out the clear message that orthodox Christian ethical beliefs are potentially harmful to children and that Christian parents with mainstream Christian views are not suitable to be considered as potential foster parents”.

Sadly, very well put.  The very institution that established marriage is now seeing it legally reconstructed into an evil distortion in the UK . . . will it come here to the US?  It seems any human feeling, any human emotion, frankly, any human imagination is now a legal right as foreseen by the founders of our country.  I don’t think so!
