    Justice Anthony Hayden has repeatedly ruled against Evans' parents, represented by pro-marriage Christian law firm

    MANCHESTER (ChurchMilitant.com) - The judge at the center of the Alfie Evans case is a pro-gay advocate and member of the Bar Lesbian and Gay Group (BLAGG), a network of gay lawyers in the United Kingdom. He has repeatedly ruled against Evans' parents, represented by the pro-life, pro-marriage Christian Legal Centre, which has condemned homosexuality as one of the "most significant challenges to God's pattern for family in today's society."

    Justice Anthony Hayden was appointed to the High Court of Justice in July 2013, and specializes in family and children's law. On his appointment, BLAGG offered its congratulations: "We have the great pleasure of congratulating Anthony Hayden on his forthcoming appointment."

    Hayden has also co-authored a book titled Children and Same Sex Families, a legal handbook on gay parenting, adoption, children's rights and so forth. The book is described as a guide for those "who provide advice and support to same sex families."

    In the preface, Hayden writes that the book addresses "the ever-evolving concept of the family."

    "We are more careful with our language now," he notes, especially in light of "the raft of equality legislation [that] provides a framework for a much fairer society in the future and one in which the options for children are expanded, keeping them at the centre of the legal process."

    The Christian Legal Centre (CLC), whose attorneys represent Alfie's parents, stands at the opposite end of the moral spectrum, rejecting homosexuality as an attack on the family.

    "The loving union of one man and one woman is the normal God-given context for children to be born and raised," reads the CLC website description. "This pattern for married life has been under attack for all of human history. Divorce, homosexuality and transsexualism are three of the most significant challenges to God's pattern for family in today's society."

    Sister to Christian Concern, CLC is a non-profit that exists "to defend Christians in the public sphere and to protect the freedom of Christians to live their lives in accordance with their Christian beliefs."
