5 Catholic Adoption Agencies In Britain Comply With Equality Act

Ekklesia reported yesterday that five of the eleven British Catholic adoption agencies that were given 21 months to adjust to the 2007 Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations have now come into compliance. The 21-months expired January 1. The complying agencies can no longer refuse to place children for adoption with gay and lesbian couples. One of the eleven Catholic agencies will close, two are seeking exemptions and authorities hope that the other three will come into compliance. (See prior related posting.)
