Equalities – Sign the Petition

Have you signed the petition yet? I have.

Christians are being encouraged to sign a petition (and to invite Christian friends to do the same) to the Prime Minister asking for the removal of schedule 9, paragraph 2, subsection 8 of the Equality Bill: http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/harryhammond/

“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Remove the current employment provisions set out in Schedule 9, Paragraph 2, subsection 8 of the Equality Bill (the occupational requirements relating to sex, marriage and sexual orientation for the purposes of organised religion). These restrict the rights of religious bodies to employ personnel who conform to their teachings only if their duties are confined to worship activities or the explanation of doctrine.”
