Slandering Their Opposition

Opposed to gay couples adopting children? Well, Britain's state-funded adoption agency thinks you're "a retarded homophobe".

Isn't political correctness wonderful?

And get this-

The British Association for Adoption and Fostering sets rules and organises training for social workers across the country.

The organisation strongly supports the legal requirement that the perceived interests of children are paramount and the wishes of would-be parents are of minor importance.

It insists that children go to homes only of adoptive parents of the same race.

Gay couples- fine. Mixed race families- verboten.

And the whole concept of gay adoption didn't fulfil its intended purpose-

Until Tony Blair's 2002 Adoption Act, children could be adopted only by married couples or single people.

Mr Blair argued that the reform would increase the proportion of the 60,000 children in state care who win new families through adoption.

But the numbers have actually fallen. Since 2004, adoptions from care have dropped from 3,800 a year to 3,200.

And because of social workers' opposition to mixed-race families-

Black children are missing out because there is a shortage of black couples wishing to adopt, yet social workers oppose sending them to non-black families.

But, hey, these rules are for the good of the children.
