Another victory for gay equality

There have been a number of test cases brought by Christians in an attempt to excuse them from obeying the gay equality laws

They must be regretting this action because so far, they have lost the lot.

The latest is Gary MvFarlane, a sex therapist and counsellor employed by Relate who didn't want to work with same -sex couples. Well he lost and relate were justified in dismissing him

It's the hypocrisy which annoys me. Did he object to counselling unmarried opposite-sex couples - which his religion is also supposedly opposed to? Of course not.

I think that the Christian lobby hoped to win exemptions from the law but I think it unlikely that these sort of cases will even make it as far as a tribunal in future as the precedents will be clear.
