Kentucky Judge Recuses Himself from Adoption Case
A judge in Kentucky has said he will recuse himself from adoption cases involving homosexual parties. The judge stated that he will be doing so “as a matter of conscience” because he feels that under no circumstances would it serve the best interest of a child to be adopted by a same sex couple.
But does this violate ethics rules? Isn’t a judge sworn to uphold the laws of the land? If he cannot do so, how is he honoring his oath? Interesting development in Kentucky – we will have to see how this plays out.
