When Is Judicial Activism Not Judicial Activism? When It Is Directed Against Gays

In 2005, Spain legalized gay marriage and gay adoption.

Two years later, Judge Fernando Ferrin Calamita “ruled in June that a woman must leave her lesbian relationship for the sake of her children or give up custody of them to the father.”

His reasoning?

“According to Ferrin, being raised by homosexuals would not allow the children the right to the proper environment to which they were entitled.

“It is understood that (a parent’s) drug addiction, child abuse, prostitution, belonging to a satanic sect or heterosexual affair would negatively affect the children and serve as a reason for a change of custody,” he said. “Well, it’s the same with homosexuality.”

For this open violation of the law, Ferrin was removed from the bench, fined, and ordered to return more than $100,000 in pay … and has become, in the process, a hero to Bryan Fischer:

If you want a peek into where America’s homosexual activists want to take us here in America, look no further than Madrid, Spain, where a prosecutor tried to get Judge Fernando Ferrin Calamita thrown in prison for issuing a pro-family ruling in an adoption case … His crime was to delay a decision on a lesbian adoption case until he received a report on the impact of the wanna-be lesbian mom on the child.

For exercising his due diligence as a family judge, which, by the way, is his sworn duty, homosexual activists have hounded him out of a job, nearly incarcerated him, and likely bankrupted him … This serves as warning to the pro-family community in the West. The homosexual lobby is not content simply to win in court. They want to lock us up.

That is right: despite the fact that gay marriage and adoption are legal in Spain, this judge ordered a lesbian mother to either find a man or give up her children … and now Fischer is hailing him for his refusal to follow the law and is instead portraying him as the victim! 

Something to keep in mind the next time you hear the Religious Right start screaming about “activist judges.”
