The problem with Christians and poofs.

Christian foster couple lose 'homosexuality views' case


A Christian couple opposed to homosexuality have lost a court battle over their right to become foster carers.
....Lord Justice Munby and Mr Justice Beatson ruled that laws protecting people from discrimination because of their sexual orientation "should take precedence" over the right not to be discriminated against on religious grounds.
Derby City Council has welcomed the court's ruling.

A spokesman said the authority "valued diversity and promoted equality" and "encouraged and supported children in a non judgmental way, regardless of their sexual orientation or preference".

There are many angles to this story. The couple in question want to foster children but refuse to tell those children that homosexuality is an acceptable life style.

I'm a little baffled as to why this is a problem. This couple want to foster children. These children should certainly have no "sexual preference" as the council puts it. The question of homosexual morality should not even arise.

What if this couple were to have children of their own? Would the state have to step in and take them away because the morals of the parents do not match the current politically correct standpoint?

It isn't their intention to interfere with the lives of adults making adult choices, they simply don't want to justify homosexuality to children who are unlikely to be discussing the subject anyway, in situations that probably will never arise.

This seems to be more like a punishment or humiliation of people who do not conform to "modern" opinion.

Personally I think we pay way too much attention to the issue of homosexuality. As a Libertarian, I believe that folk should be allowed to do as they please where it doesn't affect others. If you want to be gay, so be it.

But gay people and their spokes folk need to understand that we don't care if you're gay. Get over it and get on with it. Don't ask me to celebrate it.
