UK: Church of England Sued for Discrimination

The Telegraph reports that the Church of England was found to have unlawfully discriminated against John Reaney, who was refused a job with the Church as a youth worker. The bishop of Hereford, the Rt. Reverend Anthony Priddis, explained that he had made clear that any person in a committed relationship, regardless of orientation, would not be considered for the job, and that he was disappointed that he had been found to have discriminated against Mr. Reaney on the grounds of his sexual orientation.
