Equalities and Conscience Petition

Eunice and Owen Johns

Many people have been deeply shocked by the treatment of Christian foster carers Owen and Eunice Johns and by a string of other similar cases in recent years following the introduction of new Equalities legislation.

We are urging all individuals and groups that share these concerns to support a petition calling on the Prime Minister to take urgent action to address the situation.

Petition

Recent Equalities legislation and its interpretation in the courts has led to several individuals who hold to mainstream Christian teaching being barred from different areas of public life and employment, running counter to our country’s long heritage of Freedom of Conscience, and creating a serious obstacle to the Christian community's full and active involvement in the Big Society initiative.


We call on the Prime Minister to act decisively to address this situation, securing the change necessary to ensure that the law provides a basis for widespread involvement in serving society whilst properly upholding the dignity of every individual, including those who seek to live with integrity to Christian conscience and teaching.

Please fill in the form below to sign the petition.
