A Liberal Democrat minister has ordered Government lawyers to oppose the right of Christian workers to wear a cross.

Note: So our Government is happy to fight the Human Rights Court when it comes to Christians displaying their religion, but when it comes to kicking terrorists and criminals our of the country they drag their heels and let the Courts of Human rights walk all over them.
Whatever happened to respecting others beliefs, if your going to ban one ban them ALL
