A Roman Catholic adoption service in Leeds, England, was denied an exemption to the United Kingdom’s ban on discrimination against gay people Aug. 18. In a final determination, the Charities Commission said that Catholic Care has to follow the law like everyone else.
The service had wanted to limit its services to married straight people in order to remain faithful to Roman Catholicism’s heterosexist teachings.
