A Christian Housing Manager who was demoted from his post at Trafford Housing Trust (THT) after saying gay weddings in churches would be "an equality too far" has won a court case.
Adrian Smith had his salary cut by 40% and given a final written warning after making the comment on Facebook.
He started breach of contract proceedings against THT, saying the trust acted unlawfully in demoting him.
His comments were not visible to the general public, and were posted outside work time, but the trust said he broke its code of conduct by expressing religious or political views which might upset co-workers.
Today High Court Judge Mr Justice Biggs ruled in his favour.
