He That Loveth Another Hath Fulfilled the Law

Catholic Care, the only adoption agency which is affiliated to the Pontiff of Paedophilia and still fighting to have itself declared above the law, has lost the latest round of its crusade against the evils of homosexual parenting. The verdict brought the obligatory squeal about persecution at the hands of "a small minority who are pushing a homosexual agenda under the guise of ‘equal rights’", in the charmingly agape-sodden words of the director of the Christian Legal Centre, an establishment apparently dedicated to trying to help Christians circumvent the law. Equality legislation "is effectively squeezing out Christians who wish to serve society by requiring that they act against their conscience in matters of sexual ethics"; it is not entirely clear why such Christians cannot be considered a small minority who are pushing an anti-equality agenda under the guise of "religious rights", and eminent theologians are doubtless agonising over the matter even now. "At a time when well over 50,000 children in the UK are in need of a home," fulminated the director of the Christian Legal Centre, "we cannot afford to exclude" an agency which, when it deigned to perform the work for which the taxpayer funded it, found a home for almost one child every month. Catholic Care has suspended its adoption services during the three years of fighting the case, and a prominent part of its plea has been, in effect, no gays or the kid gets it; but the Charity Tribunal was unmoved, possibly because every other Catholic adoption agency in the country has somehow managed either to fall in line or else to leave the business of adoption to those whose consciences have outgrown the neurotic prejudices of a certain tribe of Bronze Age marauders and their adopted djinn.

    You couldn't make this shit up, could you. I wish you could, but no, it can't be done.

    I probably could make it up, but I don't think I could make it very plausible.
