Those nice Catholics, who have such a great record of child-care – ask any buggered and battered choirboy! – have decided to close down their agency rather than comply with equality laws. It’s what Jesus would have wanted, apparently.
What it is is… Catholic Care, who have, for years, been placing innocent children with mad religious folk who can fuck up their minds and their lives, have lost their appeal against new anti-discrimination laws.
Because while they are quite happy to place children with people who have broken any number of the Ten Commandments, to place a child with a happy, healthy, public-spirited gay couple would be *checks notes* against their religious principles.
Because where would a child be without a copy of the Daily Cunt to read every day, a healthy dose of guilt about anything to do with sex, some fairy stories about how you’re going to burn in hell if you don’t do EXACTLY WHAT WE SAY, and maybe the odd touching up by the local neighbourhood priest? Hmm? Where indeed?
