A marriage registrar has been vindicated by a Council’s reversal of its decision to sack her for refusing to marry same-sex couples because of her Christian beliefs. Margaret Jones, 54, who had been dismissed for “bringing the Council into disrepute,” was offered her job back after an appeal hearing ruled that her employer had failed to take a balanced view of her religious beliefs. While the decision does not create a legal precedent, it is likely to give
people greater rights to express religious beliefs in the workplace because it was based on official guidance from the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). Paul Diamond, barrister to the Christian Legal Centre, which advised Jones early in her battle, said: “All good employers should follow this precedent, and practising Christians should no longer fear expressing their beliefs.”’
