Judge Recuses Himself Over Conscientious Objection To Gay Adoptions

The Louisville Courier Journal last week reported on Kentucky Family Court Judge W. Mitchell Nance who issued an order last Thursday stating that he will recuse himself from all adoption proceedings involving "homosexual parties." His order explains that "as a matter of conscience" he believes that "under no circumstance" would "the best interest of the child be promoted by the adoption by a practicing homosexual." He cited judicial ethics rules that require a judge to recuse himself when he has a personal bias or prejudice.
