Blair Denies Catholic Church Request

There has been a battle in the UK to extend the option of adoption to same-sex couples, making it a requirement for all agencies, including Catholic run adoption agencies to allow this.

While Church leaders had asked for an exemption to this proposed law, because of Church teachings, Tony Blair has denied the request. Tony Blair's wife is a practicing Catholic.

This decision may force the hand of the Church to close all Catholic run adoption agencies in the UK. While I think this would be tragic, I believe the Church should stand by it's consistent commitment to up hold Catholic teaching.
