Med dommerstemmerne 5-4 slog Højesteretten i Puerto Rico i går fast, at homofile ikke kan adoptere børn. Russia Today skriver bl.a.:
“The state … does not have a constitutional obligation to award this relationship the same rights that other relationships have when it comes to adoption procedures,” read the majority’s opinion, which also added that children would only receive a good upbringing if raised by both a mother and father.
Dommen er et rygstød til de flere end 200,000 kristne, der i forgårs demonstrerede i hovedstaden San Juan mod visse politikereres planer om at sidestille den homofile livsstil med et normalt liv:
The mass demonstration, which took just three weeks to organize, drew in protesters from all types of Christian denominations who oppose same-sex marriage. And while some simply rallied against the idea of same-sex marriage, many were opposed to granting any rights to gay couples – including protections against violence.
I 2010 fjernede FN begrebet “seksuel orientering” fra en resolution, der fordømmer “unjustified executions“.
