Suffer Little Children

January 24, 2007

So, the C of E and the Catholic Church are uniting against the Equalities Act 2006, with the Catholics threatening to close their adoption agencies which apparently handle around 4000 adoptions per annum (almost of one third of which involve children with special needs).

Christianity: proudly putting religious bigotry before the needs of disabled children. With priorities like that it's no wonder it's a dying institution in this country.

UPDATE: Apparently it might not be 4000 adoptions per annum: the source I quoted said that the agencies were responsible for 4000 adoptions, but not per annum. Other sources puts the annual figure at 200-odd. Sorry about that.
