Christian magistrate is sacked after claiming adopted children were better off with a man and a woman as parents than with a gay couple

A Christian judge has been struck off after claiming during a BBC interview that adopted children were better off with a man and a woman as parents than with a gay couple.

Magistrate Richard Page, 68, was sacked after 15 years at Maidstone and Sevenoaks courts, in Kent, after objecting to a gay couple adopting a child live on air.

The Judiciary Conduct Investigations Office confirmed that the father-of-three has been removed from the magistracy as a district judge.

    When did it become controversial that kids need both mothers and fathers?

      Since homosexual culture took over.

    What is especially disturbing here is that it was never demonstrated
    that Mr. Page’s opinion affected any judgements he handed down.
    The Judiciary Conduct Investigations Office appears to have punished
    this magistrate for holding a politically incorrect private opinion, not
    for any actual judicial misconduct.

    So what will the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office do when a
    muslim magistrate inevitably publicly expresses a similar opinion?

      Then it’ll be a “cultural” misunderstanding .

    I say, pity what? This says so much about the vileness of the PC world. Good on ya Richard Page, enjoy your retirement.

    If however he sentence a Muslim pedophile to community service probation, and the whole country raised hell, nothing would happen to him.

    The Muslims are right about England, it does need to be all ripped down. Whatever grows in its place could be as depraved or as immoral as what is there now.
