Today’s Sunday Telegraph gives details of the way the Government intends to fight the case before the Court of Human Rights in which two British women seek to establish the right to wear a cross at work. The newspaper reports: A document seen by The Sunday Telegraph discloses that ministers will argue that because it is not a “requirement” of the Christian faith, employers can ban the wearing of the cross and sack workers who insist on doing so.”
Of course, our Government will defend the right of Muslims to wear the hijab, Sikhs to wear the turban and the Kara bracelet. Another example is the Governments intention to plough ahead with legislation to permit “gay” marriages despite the fact that the majority of Christians are opposed to this as they see marriage as a sacrament between a man and a woman for life. There is no doubt in my mind that Christians have become the marginalised faith of this supposedly Christian country.
