English registrar who would not perform same-sex ceremonies loses discrimination case
Catholic World News - December 15, 2009
An English official has lost her legal case claiming that she suffered discrimination because she declined to officiate at the registration of same-sex civil partnerships. Lillian Ladele, who avoided the ceremonies “as a matter of religious conscience,” had originally won a discrimination finding. But an appeals court ruled against her claim, finding that she had not been the victim of religious discrimination.

Our Christian religious rights are being chipped away all over the West. How contrary to logic that the English are caving on sharia law, but simultaneously desroying the Christian foundations of all western law and civilization. It's happening all over the EU and the US. We must awaken the Church Militant!
