Employment Tribunal Finds Discrimination on Grounds of Belief.

Its kind of ironic that on the day I decide to write a comment on the relationship between religious freedom and discriminination of other groups, that an employment tribunal rules that a registrar, who refused to conduct same-sex civil partnership ceremonies, was discriminated against on grounds of religious beliefs. For more see this BBC article.

The decision is somewhat surprising, but it would be premature to comment on it before reading the judgment, which can be downloaded here, in full.
