Cardinal Trujillo reaffirms Church’s rejection of adoption by homosexual couples

.- The president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, has reaffirmed the Church’s rejection off any law that would allow the adoption of minors by homosexual couples.

During the opening of the 12th plenary session of the Academy of Social Sciences, the cardinal recalled that the “rights of children” should not be “re-interpreted” or subjected to “distorted readings.”

“One cannot help but feel bewilderment at the acceptance of all this in notorious legislation such as that of Holland, Spain, Belgium and England, with the danger of exporting this same legislation to other countries, as if it were a conquest of modernity,” he warned.

The cardinal explained that “the higher interest of the child” should “be present in their adoption.”  Therefore, he indicated, adoption cannot be permitted for “civil unions of the same sex,” as the child would be exposed to “a false model that is only a caricature of the family.”
