I'm pleased to see that Islington Council has launched an appeal against the judgment that it has bullied and discriminated against Registrar Lilian Ladele, which I reported in this post. Let us hope that reason prevails and the appeal succeeds.
Meanwhile, the Telegraph reports a similar case of a "Christian policeman" taking action against Norfolk Police for alleged harassment over his religious objection to homosexuality. He was disciplined by the force after objecting to emails sent to officers encouraging them to wear a pink ribbon on their uniforms during Gay History Month. He believes the force are biased against him because he holds a faith, whereas the force say that they "will not tolerate any form of homophobic behaviour".
The answer is clear: religious beliefs must not trump the law of the land. If a homophobe was not religious then the law would not hesitate to act against them, so why should religion provide a shield against the law?
