Sexual Orientation Regulations (SOR) Starting to Hit

Hereford Diocese has lost a case against a man who brought them to court over turning him down for a youth work job because he was a homosexual. The judgement is confusing in that on the one hand the tribunal stated that "[t]he respondents discriminated against the claimant on the grounds of sexual orientation", yet on the other "the tribunal found that the bishop should only have considered the present lifestyle of Mr Reaney, who is single, and he should have not questioned his future relationships." What if the man was in a homosexual relationship at present?

During his evidence, the Bishop of Hereford said he had made clear to Mr Reaney that a person in a committed sexual relationship outside of marriage, whether they were heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or transgender, would be turned down for the post. After the judgement, he stated, "I still think the decision I made was the right one." Good man!
