During the case, the Equality and Human Rights Commission argued that children risk being ‘infected’ by Christian moral views. Yesterday the retired couple’s request for a ruling that faith should not be a bar to becoming a carer was denied at the High Court in London. Their case was heard by one of the most senior members of the family court, Lord Justice Munby, who was sitting alongside Mr Justice Beeston. It was ruled that there was no discrimination against them as Christians but that their views on sexual morality may be ‘inimical’ – or harmful – to children. In that situation, they ruled: ‘The equality provisions concerning sexual orientation should take precedence.’



High Court Judges Lord Justice Munby (left) and Mr Justice Beatson ruled that laws protecting people from discrimination because of their sexual orientation 'should take precedence' over the right not to be discriminated against on religious grounds.

Unless of course, you are Muslim.
