In March I reported that a UK judge had ruled that Catholic Care, an adoption organization, had the right to discriminate against gay couples despite laws enacted in the Equality Act of 2007.
That has been reversed, the AP reports:
"In March, it won a High Court appeal of the original decision in the case, but in a final ruling Britain's Charity Commission said the group's policy was discriminatory and breached European human rights laws.
The commission ordered the group to either cease its work to place children with adoptive parents or to abide by equality laws — meaning it would need to consider gay couples as prospective parents.
'The charity is very disappointed with the outcome, Catholic Care will now consider whether there is any other way in which the charity can continue to support families seeking to adopt children in need,' the group said in a statement."
