The Law Works?

Schizophrenics Christians: "Our sky-god says that we can be bigoted and these laws contradict His teaching! You're stealing our right of conscience."
House of Lords: "STFU, noob. Your 'rights' based on your delusions end as soon as they impact people other than you. Fuck off or be sectioned."

Well, not exactly, but near enough.

New rules outlawing businesses from discriminating against homosexuals have been upheld in the House of Lords.

A challenge led by Lord Morrow of the Democratic Unionist Party failed by a majority of three to one. He had argued that the rules forced people to choose between obedience to God and obedience to the state...

Labour’s Lord Smith said: “I am somewhat puzzled by the arguments that have been advanced. It seems to me, in my simplistic way, that what they (the opponents of the regulations) are arguing for is quite simply the right to discriminate and the right to harass. And those arguments are being made in the name of Christianity.”
