Christians should be working for non-discrimination in faith schools because the Gospel is a message of sacrificial love not selfishness, says Simon Barrow. The Accord coalition's proposed reforms offer a constructive way forward.
The government is being urged to reform faith schools to ensure they cannot discriminate against pupils and teachers on religious grounds and to give a clear commitment to inclusive, community-wide education for all Britain's pupils.
The British Humanist Association (BHA) has said that the government should close the discrimination loopholes for religious organisations involved in public service provision, and should ensure that all services are fully inclusive.
An Employment Tribunal in Abergele has today unanimously found in favour of a former employee of a Christian charity who was claiming constructive dismissal and discrimination on grounds of religion or belief.
