Here we go – a magistrate in Kent, Richard Page, has been sacked for voicing the opinion that a child who was being adopted would be better off with a mother and father rather than with a gay couple. This is common sense, but hey, let’s not let that get in the way of the stinking Cultural Marxism which is rife in the UK right now. I quote from the Daily Mail: Link
“Mr Page told the Christian Concern website he made his comments based on evidence.
He said: ‘When you sit in a Family Court, you have a huge responsibility to ensure the overall well-being of the children who are being recommended to be placed into new families.
‘You weigh the reports and references before you and the evidence you hear.
In the case of same-sex couples adopting children, it has only been a relatively short time that same-sex couples have been able to adopt and foster and therefore, there has not been time for a proper analysis to be carried out into the effects such placements have on the children’s educational, emotional and developmental wellbeing.
‘As a magistrate, I have to act on the evidence before me and quite simply, I believe that there is not sufficient evidence to convince me that placing a child in the care of a same-sex couple can be as holistically beneficial to a child as placing them with a mum and dad as God and nature intended.
‘I am surprised that the Lord Chancellor should seemingly pander to the new political orthodoxy when what it amounts to is social experimentation on the lives of the most vulnerable children in our communities.
‘I cannot believe that the establishment is trying to silence someone like me who has served it wholeheartedly all of my working life.'”
It’s nice to see the comments, for once, in favour of this man’s common sense opinion.
Please take a moment to pray for Richard Page – I hope he and his lawyers will take action – this is blatant discrimination.
God Bless you
