After first winning the world championship eight years ago he has won it again.  But what an eventful eight years it has been. 

He was only fifteen when he won it before and he has been in the limelight, sometimes not a good place to be, since then.  It takes guts to go on and survive and even win gold again in any sport but he has had the added pressure of coming out as gay and then getting married.  So many young people who become famous at an early age, in sport or entertainment or whatever,  do not resist the temptations that follow and for a sportsman it is even harder with all the training.

Fabulous final dive that had to be perfect for him to win, and he did.  He said that he can now go on his belated honeymoon. 

Well done.

Actually they would be able to adopt a new born child. 

The law does not discriminate against them compared to other people who want to adopt.

There has also been cases where children have been taken away from drug addict etc families, put into care and then given to homosexual couples to adopt and then the birth families have challenged this, but to no avail.

children ideally need a mother, the only time it is acceptable for a father to raise a child is if he is the natural father and the child has had a natural mother at some point
That is not ideal, and indeed it is best if it is the mother who cares for the child

even if a mother has had to, especially in the past, give up her child for adoption
well even that was something that could be understood by the child in later life,it was part of life and the circumstances of the time meant it hade to be.
But if someone is prepared to be a surrogate mother, and give her child away purposely and not through circumstance then the child , and later the adult, will come to feel as something less,more as a commodity
less valued than the poorest of orphans given up for adoption in the past

Littlejohn claimed children "benefit most from being raised by a man and a woman".

Center Parcs said the placement of the advert was "completely unacceptable".

It was responding to a complaint from a person who tweeted: "My son so wants me to book at your parks, but how can I do that if you support homophobia?"

The holiday resort firm responded to the tweet: "We take where we advertise very seriously and have a number of steps to prevent our advertising from appearing alongside inappropriate content.

"We felt this placement was completely unacceptable and therefore ceased advertising with the Daily Mail with immediate effect.

"We apologise for any offence this may have caused."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43093154


So to say that children benefit most with a father and a mother is now deemed 'unacceptable' and 'homophobic'????

Center Parcs responded to ONE tweet and pulled their adverts!!!!!!!!!

I shall be writing to CP asking them if they will receive money from visitors who hold views similar to Littlejohn's.

Clearly it's now time for CP to publish an unequivocal policy statement about who is and who isn't welcome to visit their businesses, given their apparent concern about the Daily Mail newspaper, and persons who believe that a child benefits most from having a Mother and Father.

Will they be carrying out background checks on potential customers, maybe setting a written test or interview for the customers concerned to ensure that no-one with what was described as a 'homophobic' view ever sullies their premises?   

There can no possible hiding place for this company in this matter, given their apparent concern, and I'm sure they would wish to be absolutely transparent about their admissions policy.
