Christian magistrate sues Government over placing children with gay couples

Sunday Telegraph25 Nov 06

A Christian magistrate is taking legal action against the Government, claiming that he was forced to resign from his role of placing children in care because of his religious belief that homosexuality is immoral. Andrew McClintock says that he was told he must preside over cases that involved gay parents despite his appeal that it would contravene his deeply held conviction that children should be brought up by heterosexual couples.;jsessionid=ZYLZ4RJUSTYKNQFIQMFSFFWAVCBQ0IV0?xml=/news/2006/11/26/ncare26.xml
