They are devoted foster parents with an unblemished record of caring for almost 30 vulnerable children. But Vincent and Pauline Matherick will this week have their latest foster son taken away because they have refused to sign new sexual equality regulations.The authorities took an 11-year-old boy from the couple and removed them from the list of available foster parents. What did they object to?
Earlier this year, Somerset County Council's social services department asked them to sign a contract to implement Labour's new Sexual Orientation Regulations, part of the Equality Act 2006, which make discrimination on the grounds of sexuality illegal.The couple are devout Christians who belive as I do that homosexuality is a sin and contrary to the Word of God. The couple prior to this had cared for 28 foster children and were exemplary parents. But because they won't go along with the liberal agenda they have been denied access to foster children. They can't even keep their foster son until they find a permanent home. Officials will remove the child tomorrow and put him in a temporary shelter. There is a severe shortage of foster parents and now those with any kind of religious beliefs are being driven from the program with these types of regulations. The couple will fight this with the help of Christian lawyers.
Officials told the couple that under the regulations they would be required to discuss same-sex relationships with children as young as 11 and tell them that gay partnerships were just as acceptable as heterosexual marriages
We are losing the fight Christians! The Gay agenda in the UK is marching boldly on and grinding Christians under it's boots. How did it get to the point where the state requires you teach kids at a young age that gay and lesbian lifestlyes are normal? This couple's objection on religious grounds was brushed aside by the powers that be. We are headed down that same path here in America. You had better speak up now Christian while you still have the right to do so.
