Gay Adoption

It's good to see the Cardinal standing up to the Government, but why do we have to close down Catholic adoption agencies? These regulations would be contrary to Natural and Divine Law. Accordingly, they have no moral force. In the sight of God they do not and could not exist. We should simply ignore these pseudo-laws. If local authorities refuse to pass on Catholic children to the Church's adoption agencies then the Church should abrogate the right of the State to take Catholic children into care. If the State seeks to take children and surrender themselves into the hands of notorious public sinners, then that is an act of violence and a crime and the civil power lapses in this area. We shouldn't be invoking our right to religious liberty we should be invoking the right of every child to a male and a female parent and fearlessly preaching the grave immorality of homosexual acts and homosexual lifestyles. The paragraph: "Homosexual couples are referred to other agencies where their adoption application may be considered. This 'sign-posting' responsibility is taken very seriously by all Catholic adoption agencies." is deeply worrying. We should not be doing this. This is directly analogous to a physician who refuses to perform abortions referring a woman seeking one to another doctor who will. Both cases involve participation through cooperation in a sin crying out to heaven for vengeance.

Even from the perspective of someone whose conscience is so darkened that they are blind to the abomination involved there is no logic to gay adoption. If same sex attraction was somehow natural then it would be unnatural for such persons to raise children. If it is (as it is) a violation of nature, then it is dangerous for such persons to raise children.
