I am still looking, and not finding, whether Catholic Care takes money from the UK government, or if this is administering an overall UK federal program. Can any one help me find this info?
I agree with this; the government has policies that any agency (religious or not) would have to follow. If the group does not wish to follow it, then they don't have to participate.

If said organization was operating with completely private funds, it has the right to refuse its services to anyone. If it was operating with state funds, then it cannot.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Obviously, enthusiasm within these Catholic adoption agencies will suffer as a result. No one, regardless of the issue, enjoys having pertinent issues--concerning the running of your institution--taken out of your hands.
I can only hope the judge weighed the lost enthusiasm--and subsequent dereliction of service concerning the most vulnerable in our society--against the supposed benefits of allowing these orphanages to be sued.
