A Christian magistrate in the UK who was fired from his position due to his views on gay adoption has lost his appeals court case.
The Christian Post reports that Richard Page, a magistrate for the Kent and Medway National Health Service Trust, was fired after he stated his opinion on national TV that children are better off when they are placed in a family with a mother and a father rather than in a family comprised of a same-sex couple.
After making this statement, Page was accused of being “biased and prejudiced against single sex adopters.”
Page has defended his beliefs by stating, “My responsibility as a magistrate, as I saw it, was to do what I considered best for the child, and my feeling was therefore that it would be better if it was a man and woman who were the adopted parents.”
The Croydon Employment Tribunal, which denied Page’s appeal, maintained that he was fired not for his views on gay adoption, but because he participated in television media appearances to discuss his views on parenting.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
