Suspended and sent for ‘equality training’ – Christian magistrate who said: ‘Adopted child needs mum and dad – not gay parents’

A Christian magistrate has been disciplined by a Tory Cabinet Minister for expressing the belief that children should be raised by both a mother and a father.

Richard Page told colleagues behind closed doors during an adoption case that he thought it would be better for a child to be brought up in a traditional family rather than by a gay couple.

He was shocked a week later when he found he had been reported to the judges’ watchdog for alleged prejudice, and was suspended from sitting on family court cases.

      No, the problem is pandering to the ignorant riff-raff when judicial acumen is necessary.

      That was before political correctness became our #1 priority in all matters.

  • God bless him for saying the truth and trying to look out for the true interests of the child.

    “1984” was supposed to be a warning, not a handbook.
