The Australian Christian Lobby has told a NSW parliamentary inquiry that the move to legalise adoption by same sex couples was ideologically driven.
ACL spokesman Lyle Shelton said...
"The move to legalise adoption by same-sex couples was ideologically driven by gay activists. Not content with having discrimination removed, (they) are now pursuing symbolic gains and holding up children as trophies for their own agenda."
The parliamentary inquiry follows a request from Community Services Minister Linda Burney to look at altering the NSW Adoption Act to allow same sex couples to adopt.
The Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) told the Standing Committee of Law and Justice's inquiry into adoption by same sex couples that children should ideally be raised by a mother and father and that homosexual relationships did not provide a stable environment for a child.
"Research shows that the most stable relationship is a married heterosexual relationship and that's where there is the least promiscuity."
