Christian demoted for anti-gay marriage Facebook post
Posted by Staff
The Daily Mail reports:

As a devout Christian, Adrian Smith was disturbed to read a report that gay marriages may be permitted in church.

So he went onto his Facebook page and posted four words summarising his own position. ‘An equality too far,’ he wrote.

But those four words, even though they were seen by only a few dozen friends and work colleagues, triggered a major battle over freedom of speech which finally ended yesterday.

Mr Smith, a tireless charity supporter who works for Trafford Housing Trust, had become a victim of the increasingly aggressive war against so-called hate crimes.

After a work colleague complained that his comment was offensive (despite having not seen the post), Mr Smith, a family man and lifelong Labour voter, was disciplined, had his job downgraded and his salary cut by £14,000. But yesterday, after a bitter and protracted court fight to overturn the decision, the married father-of-two won a landmark victory.
