Catholics using gay loophole against gays

An exception in the Sexual Orientation Regulations alowing charities to discriminate if their aims are to serve people of a particular sexual orientation was used as a loophole to allow a Catholic adoption agency to refuse gay adoptions.

And rightly so. You can’t allow some charities to discriminate against straights without allowing other charities to discriminate against gays. The exception shouldn’t have been in the law at all. Fair is fair: if you’re against discrimination, you can’t support protectionism, and this applies to freedom of speech as well.
