Labour MP calls on government to discriminate against Christians

Labour MP Diane Abbott has tabled a motion calling on the UK Government to change the law to permit religious discrimination against Christians and those of other faiths.

The motion proposes, "That this house believes that no public servant should be allowed to discriminate on this arbitrary basis and, should this case not be reversed on appeal, calls on the Government to clarify and amend the law to guard the public against discrimination and prejudice by public servants in the future."

The motion, while masquerading as an anti-discrimination measure, would remove from public servants their right to freedom of religious conscience and comes following pressure from those who follow the religion of homosexuality.
