More on the AoS case

I reported earlier on the tribunal case to be brought against the Apostleship of the Sea. The BBC has a radio segment on this today, which can be heard here with Real Audio.

Legal action against Catholic Charity
A Gay man is taking legal action against a Catholic Charity for refusing to employ him. His case will provide an important benchmark - testing new government legislation which outlaws discrimination against homosexuals. It also challenges the limits of an exemption to the legislation granted to religious organisations.

Update
The Guardian carried this report on 27 April, Charity to face tribunal over gay employment law.
