NI High Court Removes Parts of SOR

Via, in Northern Ireland "Mr Justice Weatherup said that a provision that protects LGB people from harassment when accessing goods and services should be set aside [...] Christians who provide goods and services will not be prosectuted for saying they are unwilling to provide them to LGB people [...] The churches and Christian charities who took the legal action are, The Christian Institute; The Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland; The Congregational Union of Ireland; The Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Ireland; The Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland; The Fellowship of Independent Methodist Churches; and Christian Camping International (a Christian charity specialising in camping and conferences)."

Good to know that. When travelling to Northern Ireland I'll keep as far as possible from such "goods and services" providers, and will as well expect them to keep away from me.
