A Christian couple opposed to homosexuality have lost a battle over their right to become foster carers.
Eunice and Owen Johns, 62 and 65, from Derby, said the city council did not want them to look after children because of their traditional views.
The pair, who are Pentecostal Christians, say they were “doomed not to be approved”.
The High Court ruled that laws protecting people from sexual discrimination should take precedence.
The Pentecostal Christian couple had applied to Derby City Council to be respite carers.
They withdrew their application after a social worker expressed concerns when they said they could not tell a child a homosexual lifestyle was acceptable.
At the High Court, they asked judges to rule that their faith should not be a bar to them becoming carers, and the law should protect their Christian values. Ref B.B.C News
I struggle with this issue is this not all a form of positive discrimination?
