The foster parents believe that children need a mother and a father

A British couple have been barred from adopting their foster children because of their “concerning” views about same-sex parenting.
The couple decided to try to adopt their two foster children themselves after finding out that a gay couple were prospective parents.
The unnamed Christian couple from the Midlands told social services that children need a mother and father. Social services said that this view could be “detrimental to the long-term needs of the children.”
The couple have appealed the decision made by social services in a letter to their local council.
The pair argued that they had “not expressed homophobic views, unless Christian beliefs are, by definition, homophobic.”
The foster parents had been taking care of the children since the start of 2016.
A social worker told The Sunday Times that despite the couple being praised for their “lovely care and warmth”, the pair found the idea of two men adopting the children “very challenging” and were shocked over the decision.
The husband in the foster care couple told The Sunday Times: “We don’t want to fight or make ideological arguments. We are normal people.”

    These ignorant, dogmatic people need to be educated. Sex and gender are not binary but are on continuums. Perhaps one day the Catholic Church will either grow up or its followers will abandon it.
