The government has graciously allowed the only Catholic adoption agency in Scotland to keep its charitable status, for now.
St Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society has been successful in its appeal to keep its charitable status.
In a unanimous ruling, the Scottish Charity Appeal Panel has decided in favour of the adoption agency, and overturned a ruling by OSCR (the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) that St Margaret’s must lose its charitable status.
A spokesman for St Margaret’s said: “We are delighted and relieved that the threat hanging over us has been lifted. Our only wish is to continue to do the good work for which we have been recognised by the authorities, of placing children in need of families with loving parents.”

(the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) I guess this office was started to keep people honest, but has taken a turn to deny freedom of religion.

I would like to tell that I have visited this adoption agency and it served really very nicely.

The government will purge the Catholics based on the accusation they force ideology on people. So while the government forces closure of catholic charitable legs so IT can force its own ideology on everyone, they will ruin it as they have all other social programs left to government control. Eventually, we Catholics will see the need and out of love develop proper charitable organizations. The government implodes and Catholics are left to pick up the pieces. We may have to endure a lot of suffering between now and then….if history is any lesson.
