A Kentucky judge has taken a stand against hearing cases involving gay parents adopting children.
Judge Mitchell Nance has said that he would recuse himself from adoption cases involving gay parents due to his “conscientious objection to the concept of adoption of a child by a practicing homosexual.”
This comes several years after Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis made national headlines after she refused to issue licenses to gay couples.
According to the Glasgow Daily Times, another judge will hear cases involving gay adoptions.
The Family Foundation of Kentucky released a statement In support of Judge Nance’s decision.
If we are going to let liberal judges write their personal biases and prejudices into law, as we have done on issues of marriage and sexuality, then, in the interest of fairness, we are going to have to allow judges with different views to at least recuse themselves from such cases.
Not to be outdone the Kentucky Fairness Campaign said that Nance’s decision was “clear discrimination.”
