Uk High Court Rules Christians Beliefs Are Harmful To Children

03.01.11 | Sarah Harnisch

A high court judgement in the U.K. suggests Christian beliefs on homosexuality are harmful to children. Now, the ability for Christians to take in foster kids in the U.K. is in doubt. The group "Christian concern for our nation" reported this is a landmark judgement which will have serious effects. The high court ruled Christians with traditional views on sexual ethics are not suitable as foster carers, and homosexual rights trump freedom of conscience in the U.K. The judge stated that children risked being "infected" by Christian moral beliefs. The foster parents at the center of the case say they will be appealing.
