I Am Religious Therefore I Can Make Up My Own Rules

Another Christian Registrar is complaining that she is expected to conduct gay civil partnerships against her beliefs. Earth to Plant Faith: You conducted non-religious civil marriage ceremonies for £28,000 per year yet didn't exhort the happy couple to adjourn to the nearest church instead. If you wanted pick'n'mix why didn't you work for Woolworths? Oh, and how would you feel if a member of a political party for anyone from 9 to 99 (IQ that is) had objected, for their own deeply held reasons, to be married by a non-aryan/nordic ubermensch?
It is about time that all public servants are required to park their religious beliefs at the door before they start work just like the no communism or fascism rule when I joined the Civil Service. They would then be able to give their employers the same care and attention when dealing with them. Money would be saved by not having to accommodate prayer rooms (go outside with the smokers if necessary), for example. And for those people who claim that faith makes people more honest than atheists or humanists, look at the religious affiliations of our allowance-sponging "Honourable" Members. They run the whole gamut of holy hypocrisy.

Well if a member of the ROP can get a whopping payout for being expected to wear a dress she deemed unsuitable, why shouldn't a Christian be allowed to object to actions against their believes?

Goose, gander, good for...

What's good for the goose and gander isn't good for those of us without webbed feet, and wings. We get the bill (forgive the pun) for all religions' prejudices. I am prepared to tolerate religion if it doesn't contradict common sense and reasonableness.

Isn't that being a little intolerant of our faith impaired friends?

In my own private life I am a happy little God botherer and I occasionaly make decisions based on my beliefs...these beliefs however are mine and will never impinge on anybody else or at least I hope so.

Thud: that's the happy, reasonable compromise that makes things work.

Hooky: have a look at this link (unreported by MSM)to see who is actually standing up to the extremists of the ROP
