RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN PUBLIC LIFE

That this House welcomes the decision of the Equality and Human Rights Commission to intervene in supportof four cases involving discrimination against Christians that are presently with the European Court of Human Rights; notes that this is a long overdue recognition of the need to defend religious liberty and marks an important development in relation to a better understanding of the role of faith in public life; and further welcomes the Commission's advocacy for reasonable accommodation in the workplace as an acknowledgement of the place of conscientious objection for those with religious belief.

Amendment 2081A1 - RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN PUBLIC LIFE

leave out from `welcomes' to end and add `notes the decision of the Equality and Human Rights Commission to intervene in support of four cases involving discrimination against Christians that are presently with the European Court of Human Rights; is concerned that two of these cases involve discrimination by public officials against people because of their sexuality; declines to regard these two cases as legitimate grounds for reasonable adjustment; supports the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender community and wider society in its efforts to end homophobic and transphobic prejudice and discrimination; and calls on the Equality and Human Rights Commission to review its advocacy for reasonable adjustment to ensure that religious belief cannot be used as an excuse for discrimination.'.
