Kentucky Judge W. Mitchell Nance will no longer hear adoption cases involving gay or lesbian parents. That’s because he thinks it is not in the child’s best interest to be raised by a “practicing homosexual.” In making this recusal, he cited Kentucky law that calls on judges to recuse themselves if they have personal bias or prejudice about party in the case. Nance made the announcement Thursday via a court order obtained by LawNewz.com.
Nice. His discrimination should make impeachment a piece of cake. Then again, it IS Kentucky.
