Lillian Ladele – here seen holding her cross between her thumb and forefinger so she must really mean it – has had her latest and very expensive case at the European Court of Human Rights, in which she was fighting for her right to legally hate gay people, thrown out on its ass.
Lillian – who you might remember from ongoing shirking actual work and attempting to sue Islington Council, London’s glittering N1, for sacking her because she refused to do her job on the grounds of deeply held religious cuntiness (for those new to us a. where the fuck have you been? and b. she refused to conduct same-sex civil unions because she said the Baby Jesus wouldn’t want her for a sunbeam if she did, all the while conveniently forgetting she has a bastard child), took her final appeal to the Grand Chamber, funded of course by a bunch of Christian crazies.
Keith Porteous, executive director of the National Secular Society, had this to say on the matter:
‘Fortunately, Europe’s highest court has now wisely followed numerous lower courts and rejected the applicants’ attempts for religious conscience to trump equality law.
‘The UK has the world’s most comprehensive equality laws which already include strong protection for religious believers and they would have been fatally compromised, particularly LGBT people, had the Grand Chamber overturned any of these judgments.’
The beady-eyed among us will notice the apostrophe came after the s on ‘applicants’. That is because there was another religious loon paid by the State trying to win the right to discriminate (Gary McFarlane, refused to give therapy to gay couples, BHS ties), but sanity whipped his lazy ass.
Lillian is thought to be stroking her asymmetric bob ten times on the left, ten times on the right, ten times on the left, as we speak. Unfortunately, the lambs will never stop screaming.
Christian Cunt Lillian Ladele keeps trying to discriminate, but the European Court of Human Rights says no, no, no. ,
