Government of Great Britain: No Right to Wear a Cross at Work

An extraordinary position for, of all countries, Great Britain to take before the European Court of Human Rights.  Here’s a bit from the story:

In a highly significant move, ministers will fight a case at the European Court of Human Rights in which two British women will seek to establish their right to display the cross.

It is the first time that the Government has been forced to state whether it backs the right of Christians to wear the symbol at work.

A document seen by The Sunday Telegraph discloses that ministers will argue that because it is not a “requirement” of the Christian faith, employers can ban the wearing of the cross and sack workers who insist on doing so.
