Or maybe people are just waking up and deciding that Christianity isn't for them? and searching for different answers
David Cameron ranted not so long ago about how this was a 'Christian country' and that we shouldn't be afraid to say so and stand by those christian values and ideals.
And yet here we are. Guess his need to assuage the Lib Dems has shown his true colours:
Popularity at any price.
You know, seperation of Church and State (which I believe in,) works BOTH WAYS.

No not at all
I was simply using it as an example I knew many could get a handle on
Possibly a poor choice ............
However the hajib is a associated symbol of a religion
How's about the full face veil ? Is that still allowed ?
How's about if I carry a set of beads ?

It doesn't matter who the employer is, what the employee does, where the worker works, who the worker interacts with or any other perceivable reason.
An employer should never be able to fire someone for displaying a religious symbol. Whether Christian, Pagan, Islamic, Jewish, whatever.
And above all, the GOVERNMENT should never officially back such discrimination!

My CROSS is tattooed on my arm, if you don't like it, come try to take it off of me. I assure you "JOB" himself would not have suffered as you will. So PLEASE, try that crap here and I, as well as others will arrange your meeting with GOD so you can explain it to him in person. Tell all those and 'my" government the same thing! Stay out of Religion.

OMG people read the article the government isn't trying to ban crosses they are just saying it isn't a requirement to wear a cross if you are a Christian they are just pointing out that if an employer has a dress code which states no religious symbols or necklaces etc that the Christians do not have the right to wear them just because they are Christian.
The people who are taking this to court are fighting their employers not the government and the government are just saying "well it's upto the business to make their own code of practise.
Do you people read anything? or do you just read the title and start moaning.
No wonder you lot burnt people at the stake on rumors and mistruths.
Also look at one of the people taking it to court she is a nurse and in a nurses job it states No jewellery, what do you people want an unhygienic nurse? who could cause harm to her self and patients?edit on 13-3-2012 by boymonkey74 because: (no reason given)
yes it should be bannedIt hasn't helped that the government has said "yes it should be banned"
As I said previously, deal with the dress code or get another job, it's not that difficult to comprehend

There is so little detail here to actually make an informed comment.
The women, as much as I can gather from the brief article, are arguing that they should be allowed to wear crosses at work. Depending on the type of work they are engaged in should dictate policy on jewelry.
