crossFollowing the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s recommendation that Christians should in some cases be allowed to refuse good and services to LGBTs, a parliamentary committee is to discuss possible changes to the law.

The EHRC made the recommendation following several cases in which Christians were taken to court.

The most public of these include the case of Eunice and Owen Johns, who were banned from fostering because they refused to teach the children in their care about homosexuality; registrar Lilian Ladele, who refused to marry gay couples; and sex counsellor Gary McFarlane, who refused to counsel gay couples.

MPs and Lords will be allowed to have their say in a series of public hearings later in the year.
