British Christians and the sex equality law

I may not be Christian, but I feel sympathetic towards Christians fighting the new sex equality law. The public don't seem particularly keen on the new laws either, but this is Britain, and the Government aren't troubled by anything so trivial as public opinion (you wonder why people don't bother voting).

I wonder.... in whose best interests is the law is really concerned with? Earlier this year in the state of Massachusetts, the Catholic Church withdrew from adoption services rather than be forced by the state to place children with gay couples. Are children's needs coming first or are we more concerned about punishing people whose views we dissapprove of?
