A Christian couple who were barred from fostering children after they admitted that they believe homosexuality is unacceptable are to challenge the ban at the High Court.

Eunice and Owen Johns, of Derby, were told by the city council in 2007 that a fostering panel had rejected them because of their views.

The couple, who are Pentecostal Christians and have fostered almost 20 children in the past, say they were told that they would have to tell their foster children that it is okay to be gay.

But they do not recognise sex before marriage, or the validity of civil partnerships.

Mrs Johns said: “The council said: ‘Do you know, you would have to tell them that it’s OK to be homosexual?’

 Regardless of the outcome, I hope the court decides based on the best interests of the child…
