Christian in gay marriage case 'fearful of more cases'

A Christian who won a breach of contract court case after he was demoted for expressing his opposition to gay marriage says he fears there will be more court cases if 'marriage is redefined'.

“I have won today. But what will tomorrow bring? I am fearful that, if marriage is redefined, there will be more cases like mine – and if the law of marriage changes people like me may not win in court.

“Does the Prime Minister want to create a society where people like me, people who believe in traditional marriage, are treated as outcasts? That may not be his intention, but that’s what will happen.

“The Prime Minister should think very carefully about the impact of redefining marriage on ordinary people."

– Adrian Smith
