Ann Farmer: Persecution of a true family man


Christian magistrate Richard Page, sacked for stating his belief that it is best for any child to be raised in a traditional family with a mother and father, has lost his appeal, apparently because he spoke about the case in the media. Far from condemning the abuse he suffered, an employment tribunal panel said that if they had known of his view that homosexual activity was wrong, they ‘may well have concluded that this was not a belief that was worthy of respect in a democratic society’.
Their idea of a democratic society is one in which public opinion based on thousands of years of experience of what contributes to human flourishing should be repressed, and any dissenters excluded from the public sphere.

Most people would respect Mr Page’s view, not necessarily from a Christian angle but from one of mere common sense. Moreover they would condemn those paid from the public purse to arrange fostering and adoption who would rather earn brownie points from the sexual diversity campaign by engaging in social engineering at the expense of innocent children in desperate need of a loving and stable family – and persecute magistrates who actually care about their work.
