A Christian mayoral candidate lost her job at a housing association for expressing her beliefs about marriage in her election manifesto.

Maureen Martin, President of the Christian People’s Alliance, had stood to be Mayor of Lewisham in April this year.

As part of her election manifesto, she had outlined her political position on various topics, including on marriage.

The manifesto stated, ‘I pledge to cut through political correctness and simply state the truth that natural marriage between a man and a woman is the fundamental building block for a successful society and the safest environment for raising children.’
