Equality Versus Christianity

One again the issue of human rights versus equality has raised its ugly head. A couple in Wales will take a case to the Strasbourg Court of Human Rights (CHR) to see if the equality laws outweigh religious beliefs. As we all know, everyone has a right to follow whatever religion they choose, but in a few cases the equality laws have stepped in and overridden this basic right.

I write in particular about a couple in Llandrindod Wells in Wales. Sue and Jeff Green run a guest house and had a spot of bother with the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The complaint concerned the couples web site which advertised their guest house. Apparently, someone had complained to the commission about a line on the site that stated double rooms were “to let for married couples.” The Greens had little choice but to remove the ‘offending’ line and advertise single rooms only. Since then the complaint has been closed.

They are devout Christians just like the Hazelmary and Peter Bull who lost a court case and appeal when they refused a room to a homosexual couple in 2008. Their defence was that they were a devout Christian couple and did not rent rooms to any unmarried couples. Of their failed appeal, Lady Hale, deputy president of the Supreme Court, said: “Sexual orientation is a core component of a person’s identity which requires fulfillment through relationships with others of the same orientation.”

Following this episode, the Greens now want to determine which has precedence in the eyes of the law, equality or Christian beliefs and human rights. Mr Green said the recent UK equality legislation had “huge implications” for Christians “who want to live their lives according to their beliefs. We have no prospect of success in the British courts so we have decided to take this to Europe. I want to establish whether Christian beliefs and human rights are superseded by equality laws. It seems that recent UK equality legislation is being used to undermine Christian faith and values.”

I for one can hardly wait for the outcome of this case. It puts this major dilemma slap in the hands of the people who created the problem in the first place. This one bold move will tell us how the courts think about religious beliefs when weighed against the Equality Laws. Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, the legal arm of Christian Concern, said, “It is ironic that the court in Strasbourg seems to understand the nature of Christian faith better than our own courts. Debate over sexual morality has been allowed to become a battlefield and we are concerned about the attempt to clamp down and even exclude Christian beliefs on the issue from public life.”

Our Judges Have 'Lost The Plot'

Our Judges Have ‘Lost The Plot’

It sickens me when I read such stories, because the homosexual population seem to think they can run rough-shod over everyone and everything just be screaming ‘Discrimination’ to the Equality Commission. In Britain in particular judges do not have the ‘balls’ to put a stop to this nonsense. ‘Gay’ parades, ‘gay’ marriage, the adoption of babies, it has all gone too far and all the in the name of ‘equality’.

I see no reason why a devout Christian couple should not refuse a room to an unmarried or homosexual couple if it goes against their religion. But the sad thing is, being a true Christian is becoming outdated, and anyone who still believes is an outcast.

Homosexuals Milking The System

Homosexuals Milking The System

The human rights laws were conceived with noble purpose, but today they are used by homosexuals and criminals (with the help of dubious money-grabbing lawyers) to get what they want, be it right or wrong. The laws have been perverted to such an extent that they protect the undeserving far more than those who really need them.

In my humble opinion, the quicker we get out from under the crushing yoke of Europe’s EHCR and the CHR the better, for then Britain can once again have a set of laws that are sensible and righteous.
