Coalition calls on Lords to reject religious exemptions in Equality Bill

A coalition of liberal religious and social justice groups is calling on the House of Lords to reject religious opt-outs from the Equality Bill.

The bill is scheduled for its second reading in the Lords this week.

Founder of the Cutting Edge Consortium Maria Exall said: "It is vital that progressive faith and secular voices are heard loud and clear supporting the Equality Bill and equal rights for LGBT people."

She added: "Parliament must understand that many members in good standing in a variety of faith communities do not share the views expressed in public by some religious leaders. We urge the House of Lords to stand firm for justice and equality at this time."
