Family court Judge W. Mitchell Nance of Kentucky says that “as a matter of conscience” he is recusing himself from hearing any adoption cases involving homosexuals because he believes allowing a homosexual to adopt is never in the best interest of the child.
Another judge in the district will hear any cases Nance doesn’t, so Nance’s stance will not prevent homosexual couples from adopting. Still, the LGBT community is calling for Nance to resign.
To better understand why another judge handling the adoptions is not an acceptable accommodation, see today’s blog post.
