Catholic Care wins case


Mr Justice Briggs has ruled in favour of Catholic Care in its case in the High Court. (See: Catholic adoption society wins court battle over gay rights exemption) I reported on this case a couple of weeks ago.

The website of the Diocese of Leeds carries the statement of Bishop Arthur Roche. Damian Thompson has written on the case: Gay adoption: a setback for Labour in its vicious war against the Churches. George Pitcher has also taken up the story: Thank God for Catholic adoption agencies

Warmest congratulations to Catholic Care and the Diocese of Leeds. This is a significant victory and calls into question the action of other Catholic adoption agencies which have either closed or transferred their adoption provision to a newly-formed non-Catholic charity.
