Homophobia is NOT mainstream in the UK

Here’s the statement by the couple who were denied the right to foster due to their extreme beliefs.

They make it sound so innocent, but what happens when they foster a child who comes to his foster mother or father and says “I’m Gay” and they say “Thats a sin”. I hope they wouldn’t consider packing this child off to an pray-the-gay-away camp, but honestly from their attitude it is what I would expect.

In the UK mainstream christianity is pro-equality and pro-tolerance. The homophobic bigoted variant of christianity these people refer to is far outside on the extreme fringe of christianity.

You are entitled to believe whatever you want in your own head and home, but there is no implicit right to foster… and I agree that such viewpoints make you totally unsuitable to foster.
