UK - British Judge Forced to Resign Rather than Participate in Homosexual Adoptions

UK - British Family Court Judge Forced to Resign Rather than Participate in Homosexual Adoptions

Says he must consider best interests of children, rather than legal advances of homosexuals

LONDON, October 23, 2007 ( – Andrew McClintock is a British magistrate who resigned his position on a family courts panel in Sheffield rather than become involved in family cases in which children might be adopted by homosexual partners. He is appealing a tribunal decision that said he had no right to opt out of such cases.

The 63 year-old McClintock, a father of four, had written to his employers asking for an exemption just before a law allowing homosexual partners to adopt children came into effect in April. He said he was bound to consider the best interests of children, rather than the legal advances of homosexual partners.

McClintock is appealing a previous decision by a Sheffield employment tribunal that ruled he had not been the victim of discrimination. His appeal of that decision starts today. He is seeking reinstatement and the right to opt out of such cases. McClintock's lawyer, Paul Diamond, argued today that he has been the victim of anti-Christian secularising trends in the legal profession since his religious beliefs, in agreement with numerous scientific studies, hold that homosexual partners cannot provide the best environment for children.

Diamond told the tribunal that there are “rational grounds” for believing that it is not in the best interests of children to be placed with homosexual partners. In his first case, Dean Byrd, Vice-President of the US-based National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH), gave testimony saying that strong statistical evidence shows children adopted by homosexual partners exhibit behavioural problems “not so dissimilar to those raised by divorced heterosexual parents”.

In his letter, McClintock told the South Yorkshire Courts Panel that the gains made by homosexual activists to allow "gay" adoption have been “an experiment in social science”. Mr Diamond said “It is possible to argue that a child can thrive in a same-sex household. What is more difficult to argue, however, is that it is anything but experimental. This is a judge saying, ‘I’ve got a duty - you wouldn’t experiment with medicine on children; show me the evidence’.”

“A sitting judge was put in the position where he had to stand down. There cannot be a religious bar to office,” Mr. Diamond told the tribunal. “People are religious and do carry their views with them.” McClintock had served as a family court judge for 18 years; he continues to sit in non-family cases.

Yes I have lots to say about the stupid duck billed not to clever Trevor stepping another MP outside in the highest Court in the land , but why bother, as politicians dwell in cess -pit of self delusion and self belief that they are wrapped in cotton wool shielded by a deluded - we don't care as under Helengrad we can do what we like !!

I would like to see what happened to me if I stepped someone outside in a Court ?

As for the above disgusting comments about children . Please kiwis understand the gutter tactics employed by the New Zealand Labour Party communist control freaks !!

Is some cowardly shit-stirrer tosser accusing you of fucking kids up the ass? Fuck off you anonymous cum-stain.

And the other anonymous got it in one. Check out Hagley Park any day of the week. You'll see gay guys boning each other's asspipes out. They care more about their perverted sexual habits than about honest families that love their children.

Who the hell makes jokes about kids like that? Is that small penis prick called Phillip John Mason bugging you again?

Phillip John Mason is going to regret making these malicious comments one day . I have a great loathing for twisted scum, like the mental Mason, who promote inappropriate behaviour towards children .

Mr Mason is a walking time bomb and he should be in a cell as his comments are criminal !! Children are in grave danger from freaks like Mason !!Society does not need his type .

Hi D4J. So I hear you've been having a good time at Hagley park lately? Lots of athletic and physical pursuits to enjoy? Nothing to be ashamed of though dad - many a good middle aged man has lived a life treading the straight and narrow, only to find out in their autumn years that they were anything butt this. Needless to say, I wish you luck in your pursuits, whatever they may be.

Yours sincerely,

Roger Nome.
