A man from Bristol who was sacked for saying his Christian beliefs prevented him giving sex therapy to gay couples has lost his legal challenge at the European Court of Human Rights.
The judges found the decision by the guidance service Relate to sack Gary McFarlane WAS designed to ensure that no clients were discriminated against. The Christian Legal Centre, which took up his case, argued HE was the one who suffered. Bob Constantine reports from the group's offices in London.
