U-turn: MPs turn their backs on Christian religious liberty

Three MPs are scrambling to distance themselves from the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s (EHRC) decision to defend the religious liberty of Christians.

Earlier this month the EHRC revealed that it was planning to intervene in four religious liberty cases heading for Europe.

It also said that employers should do more to “reasonably accommodate” employees with religious beliefs.  While the commission’s decision was welcomed by Christian groups, homosexual activists and humanist campaigners were outraged.

Now three of the nineteen MPs who signed an Early Day Motion welcoming the commission’s decision have withdrawn their support.
