Not very Christian; LETTERS.
Not so, it seems. The government's "Equality Bill" directive regarding "Equal Opportunities" is being used to persecute Christians again, in a more subtle way, as homosexual rights trump Christian rights in employment.
In a recent case of Gary Mcfarlane, a Christian counsellor who worked for Relate, was sacked from his job of many years, because he could not give an unequivocal commitment to help same-sex couples to improve their sex lives. It seems the government is only promoting its politically correct agenda, and riding roughshod over firmly-held Christian beliefs.
This decision is just the tip of the iceberg to persecute or prosecute Christians for their beliefs, and should be a stark warning to people of conscience in this nation that as a result of 12 years of Labour rule, the British establishment no longer values the democratic rights of its citizens to hold conscience as a matter of principle.
