Topic - ECHR Gives Christians the Right to force stuff in your face

winhill - on 15 Jan 2013
NB May contain nuts.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled that the UK had failed to protect Nadia Eweida's freedom to manifest their faith in the workplace...

But in its judgment the court said that manifesting religion is a "fundamental right".

It added: "[This is because] a healthy democratic society needs to tolerate and sustain pluralism and diversity; but also because of the value to an individual who has made religion a central tenet of his or her life to be able to communicate that belief to others."


A peculiar view, pluralism and diversity are limited to religious views only, apparently.
