Brit Judge Who Opposes Gay Adoption Fights Back

A family court judge in Sheffield, England, who resigned to avoid having to approve adoptions by gay couples, has launched an appeal to get his job back.

Andrew McClintock, 63, is claiming discrimination based on religious belief.

A lawyer for the government said United Kingdom law supports gay adoptions, and that a tribunal that refused to excuse McClintock from same-sex cases had acted correctly.
