This morning in Strasbourg, a chamber of the European Court of Human Rights held a hearing in four consolidated cases concerning religious freedom in Britain. The applicants are British Christians who allege that UK employment law does not sufficiently protect their rights to wear crosses at work and to refuse duties that, in the applicants’ view, condone homosexual activity. The court will post a broadcast of the hearing on its website shortly, starting at 2:30 pm local time. For the ECtHR’s press release summarizing the issues in these cases, follow the links here.
