Four Christians have gone to the European Court of Human Rights to argue that Christians as a group are being discriminated against in the UK, notes Symon Hill. But it is one thing to argue for free expression, quite another to argue for the right to discriminate against same-sex couples. Meanwhile, other Christians have witnessed to their faith by preparing to go to prison for a protest aganist nuclear weapons - but that case has received far less attention.
The 'Keep Marriage Special' campaign has attracted publicity with claims that the legalisation of same-sex marriage could lead to incest and illegal immigration. A look at the groups and individuals behind the campaign suggests that gay and bisexual people are not the only targets of their hostility, suggests Symon Hill.
