Churches may still be guilty of illegal discrimination under the new Equality Laws

The EU has apparently ruled that the exemptions allowed to religious institutions over refusing to employ people on the grounds of their sexual orientation or practices may be too generous and contravene European law.

I recently blogged on the Lord's ruling that upheld the religious exemption clause introduced by Lord Waddington (12th November) which gave an indication of the controversy that the Equality legislation has generated. I am not going to comment here, but it will be interesting to see the various reaction of interested parties both outside and within the Church.
