Victory for fairness and common sense

I have received today the following email from the Christian Institute.

A Christian registrar from Islington who was bullied and threatened with the sack because of her religious beliefs on same sex unions has succeeded in her claims of unlawful discrimination by the council.

In its unanimous judgment, the employment tribunal found that Miss Lillian Ladele was directly discriminated against by Islington Council after she asked to be allowed not to perform civil partnership registrations.

Congratulations to Lillian Ladele for refusing to deny her faith. Jesus taught that those who are persecuted for his sake will be greatly rewarded: Jesus said, If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. Matt. 16:24,25.
