I wonder how many Church of England priests have lost their jobs for speaking out against same gender marriage. I bet it is far less than the number who have lost jobs and promotion for speaking in favour. Discrimination against Christians is out there but most of it is Christian with power against Christian without power discrimination. Bishop against priest. Christian man against Christian woman. Straight Christian against gay Christian. What is happening in Parliament today is that those who have traditionally done the discriminating in the churches can see the pay back coming and knowing the pain they have caused to others now fear for themselves. Of course, the only pain they will end up feeling is the pain of losing their opportunity to derive pleasure from lording it over others and having their words of hate listened to by the public. That will be a real pain for them but it is not something the rest of us should worry unduly about.
