A Christian who was demoted for posting his opposition to gay marriage on Facebook has won his breach of contract action against his employer.
Adrian Smith lost his managerial position, had his salary cut by 40%, and was given a final written warning by Trafford Housing Trust (THT) after posting that gay weddings in churches were "an equality too far".
The 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.
Mr Smith brought breach of contract proceedings, saying the trust acted unlawfully in demoting him. And today Mr Justice Briggs ruled in his favour at London's High Court.
