Britain to oppose wearing cross at workplace

Last Updated: Monday, March 12, 2012 - 23:03

London: A British minister has ordered government lawyers to oppose the right of Christian workers to wear a cross.

On the directions of Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone, the lawyers will call on European human rights judges to dismiss the claims of Christian workers who have been banned from displaying the symbol of their faith at work, the Daily Mail reported.

The move means Prime Minister David Cameron`s coalition is now lined up against the Christian churches on a second battleground.

Cameron is already at loggerheads with both Anglican and Roman Catholic churches over same-sex marriage.
