It has been reported in the Telegraph today that Church of England bishops have asked the Coalition to take steps to protect Christians from the effect of equality laws.
This comes in the wake of a number of cases highlighting the frequent conflict between religion and equality. Who recalls the Christian hotel owners who were sued (and lost) for refusing to allow a homosexual couple to share a room or the British Airways employee who brought a tribunal claim (and lost) after being told she could not wear a cross around her neck?
Given the repeat of the word ‘lost’ in the summary above, this move by the Church of England should not come as any surprise. Equal rights or unequal rights??
