Christians who object to aspects of their work on grounds of conscience will be lawfully excluded from some jobs, lawyers have warned - despite a landmark judgment upholding an airline check-in clerk's right to wear a cross.
Campaigners claimed that millions of people who hold traditional politically incorrect views could now face new restrictions because of rulings against three other Christians involved in the European Court of Human Rights case.
They claimed that the judgment actively increases the risk that those who dissent on the issue of same-sex marriage will not be free to voice their dissent.
Their comments came as the court in Strasbourg ruled that Britain had failed to protect the right of Nadia Eweida, a British Airways clerk, to manifest their faith by wearing a small cross.
The judges accepted for the first time that wearing a cross was an important expression of Mrs Eweidas faith which deserved protection under the European Convention on Human Rights even though it is not an explicit tenet of Christianity.
It said that Miss Eweidas rights trumped the companys wish to project a certain corporate image.

It remains unclear whether that will not now happen because of Mrs Eweidas victory.
But Mrs Chaplin said: I still expect David Cameron to change the law and anything else would be a broken promise
This will be interesting to follow....
Having gotten away with declaring the death of the living God, Big Brother is now in charge of creating and uncreating man, thus if he decides that incest, rape, sodomy, and pedophilia are neo-genders then that is exactly what they are, and as he informs the collective conscience of the omniscient god-State, then his rulings (politically correct pseudo-morality)become state-policy.
Tell me about it! I lost everything at a public university. They are all Nazi’s
