Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali: Christians being singled out


The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) is today hearing the cases of four British Christians who say they have been discriminated against because of their faith.

They include a sex therapist who refused to treat a gay couple, two women who were told by their employers not to wear their crosses at work, and a registrar who wouldn't conduct civil partnerships.

They are being supported by Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali. Speaking to the Today programme on BBC Radio 4, he said he felt recent legislation has unfairly singled out Christians.
