Britain fights Christians' right to wear cross

Christian activists in Britain are furious at the arguments their government will use against them when Europe's highest court considers whether employees have the right to wear crosses that show over their uniforms.

Britain will argue that the two Christian women at the center of the case had the option of quitting their jobs and working elsewhere, so they are not covered by European human rights law, according to legal papers obtained by CNN.

"Employees who face work requirements incompatible with their faith, and have the option of resigning and seeking alternative employment, cannot claim for a breach of Article 9" of the European Convention on Human Rights, Britain will argue.

The government will also say that wearing a cross is not a requirement of Christianity, so wearing one in public is not protected by the law.

The European Court of Human Rights has agreed to hear the case

  • Its a damned disgrace. A Christian is the biggest and easiest target to take down. In comparison, look at all the capitulations governments of all sorts resort to giving in to Islamic demands.
    Here's a good one. World FA Cup management need special clothing rules for Muslim women playing soccer because someone might see their ankles or hair. Fer fuck sakes Sherlock. Muslims need special swimming pools to segragate swimmers because men might has swam in there and sperm might be present in the wa More..

  • You have GOT to be kidding. I just read that a Muslim nurse was given reprieve to roll up her sleeves when scrubbing up for surgery because it was against her religion to expose her arms. And that's a public health issue.

  • There are no Christians in the UK, how on earth people still tick the census option and inflate the figures to something like 71% of our population as christian when less than one in ten go to church regularly. I dont know one person in the UK who goes to church except at Christmas time when they are drunk, hypocrites.

  • I've no problem with people wearing discreet crosses - just like chaps wear old-school ties. It's a recognition thing. You've heard of Gaydar. I don't think there is Christdar.

    What I object to is being prosletized in the workplace or being invited to attend prayer sessions to overcome some work problem.

  • Common sense is very uncommon these days. If someone wants to wear a modest symbol of their belief - just let them. The only people this MIGHT bother are the racists and bigots. I hope it gives them an ulcer.

  • Mathew 6.5 should cover this. Keep your praying and shit private.

      Don't respond to that dipshit. This is his standard troll question. He usually asks "what does America mean". He is a notorious troll on LL.
