Judgement threat to free speech

Published 26/05/2015

The decision in the "gay cake" case should concern all of us.

The application of discrimination law to settle questions of conflicts of belief is taking us away from a free society and towards one where a secular priesthood of judges, bureaucrats and activists regulate every aspect of our lives.

We need a proper right to freedom of speech similar to that guaranteed by the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
