Many Christians 'feel discriminated against' in the workplace
New research has discovered that 63 per cent of Christian employees feel they are faced with discrimination in the workplace.

The survey of members of the Church's parliament also revealed that 59 per cent believe there has been a decline in religious liberty over the past ten years.

In addition, many think freedom of religious belief has been eroded by the Labour government.

This comes following several news reports over the past few weeks about Christians who have faced disciplinary action because of their religious beliefs.

Joanna Monckton, a lay member of the Lichfield diocese, said there is "increasing levels of political correctness which has seen Christians become the most discriminated against people in society".

In related news, Personnel Today recently reported that according to the Employers Forum on Age, there is still a great deal of ageism in many workplaces.
