No More Hiding Places for Prejudice

The TUC have just issued this excellent briefing 'No more hiding places or prejudice' commenting on the sexual orientation regulations and the religious pressure for exemptions, and giving some excellent examples, both of real life examples as well as of Christian groups who are in opposition to the hysteria being whipped up by groups like the Lawyers Christian Fellowship, the Christian Institute and Anglican Mainstream.

It's an excellent risposte to some of the more ludicrous pourings forth of the religious right.

Meanwhile this promises to be a busy week - Tuesday sees the House of Lords vote on a motion to annull the regulations; Wednesday the committee to scrutinise them in the House of Commons will be unveiled (not sure which days they will sit on).

The last day for the regulations to be annulled is the 20th January. The regulations covering the rest of the UK are due to come into force in April.
