    and i am a practicing catholic.  

    if the catholic church stops providing adoption services in the UK, other agencies, religious and otherwise, will eventually step in to take their place.  but they should not be allowed to provide adoptions in violation of british law.

    i do not believe the the government should make any exeption for the church.  It is the government's job to regulate adoption services.  either they comply with those regulations or they do not.

    if the church gives up its adoption services in the UK (and elsewhere), well then the church is going to have to live with themselves and take it up with god.  i think they will find that they are on the wrong side.

    but then again im not god....

      I have heard many stories of compassionate, caring assistance and good work done by Catholic Charities, including employees who have tried to do so without discrimination or putting people down. But I have also heard about the dioceses increasingly imposing dogmatic restrictions. The same appears to be happening with the Salvation Army here in the US--the church side of SA is imposing doctrinal requirements on the social services side which is receiving federal funds!

      Blessed are the arrogant...for they shall be really impressed with themselves.
