Third Topic – English Church To Drop Adoption Services
Catholic dioceses in England are pulling out of adoption agencies because of government policies requiring equal treatment of same-sex couples seeking to adopt children. The dioceses of Southwark, Portsmouth, and Arundel and Brighton have agreed to end their affiliation with the Catholic Children's Society. Many are predicting that other dioceses would soon follow suit, while some Catholic agencies vowed a court battle to protect their right to continue offering adoption services without compromising their Catholic identity. British journalist Joanna Bogle is with us to discuss this disturbing trend.
