Equality Bill

The Government is proposing to introduce new gay rights laws to protect individuals from hostile or humiliating ‘environments’ as part of an overhaul of discrimination legislation, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph. The proposals may be included in a Single Equality Bill and church leaders have warned that Christians could be sued if the laws come into force.

The Lawyers’ Christian Fellowship said that the new proposals could allow unrepentant homosexuals to sue if they heard a sermon that condemned homosexuality or if they had been refused church membership and felt humiliated.
