ANTI-CATHOLIC BIGOTRY UPDATE: Catholic Ban on Women Priests ‘Illegal Under Harriet Harman Equality Bill’

The Roman Catholic ban on women entering the priesthood will become illegal under Harriet Harman’s controversial Equality Bill, according to Christian charity, CARE. A new report by the leading charity – backed by a legal opinion from a leading QC – says the Bill will make it impossible for all churches and faith-based charities to insist that their senior staff lead private lives in accordance with their religious beliefs. CARE said that, under the Bill, which will be considered by the House of Lords on Monday, it would be illegal for a Christian charity to sack a senior manager for adultery or living an openly gay lifestyle. The same rules would, it added, apply to Muslim and Jewish churches and charities.
