"Much is said about equality and diversity. But it seems that some people are more equal than others"
A reasoned and eloquent statement by Hazelmary Bull following a court judgment and fine of £3,800 for breaching the provisions of Labour's 2007 Equality Bill (full judgment HERE).
But in this case there was no bias or 'prejudice' against homosexuals. Mr and Mrs Bull sought to honour the biblical teaching and uphold Church tradition that sexual intercourse ought to be confined to the context of marriage. Their policy applied equally to heterosexuals.
While the British Humanist Association are crowing (as they are wont to do), His Grace thanks all of those Christians, agnostics, atheists and homosexuals who have expressed support for Peter and Hazel Mary Bull. This judgment has profound implications for the liberties of us all. It persuades His Grace even more of the rightness of his 'Mind Your Own Business' census campaign, to tell the Government where to go with their invasive data collection and where they can stick their question on private matters of religious belief.
