English bishop sees court bias against Christians

September 19, 2011

An English Catholic bishop has charged that British courts are misinterpreting human-rights laws to punish Christians.

Archbishop Peter Smith of Southwark complained of “wooly thinking” by judges in decisions that have refused to recognize the rights of Christians to wear a crucifix, decline to officiate at same-sex unions, or provide therapy for gay couples. In each of these cases, the courts applied human-rights law without acknowledging religious rights, he said. “The courts are misinterpreting the law,” the archbishop insisted.
