 UK Christian charity worker suspended by 'Christian' employer

Many Christian organisations have successfully resisted being forced to employ non-Christians.

Resistance to the expression of Christian beliefs at workplaces run by secular or government employers used to be restricted to sharing those views with clients/petients, and has been going on since the 1970s in a veiled way. Now the prohibition is encoded in employment contracts ...

'... the charity English Churches House Group, which was recently taken over by Society of St James, was largely funded by churches throughout Hampshire whose followers would be 'shocked at the attitude and action taken by a Christian organisation towards a Christian employee'.

He added: 'The Archbishop of Canterbury, as patron, has confirmed the Church's teaching on marriage, same-sex relationships and homosexuality and that is in the public domain.

'We are interested to know whether his patronage is now under threat under the charity's Culture and Diversity Code of Conduct.'
