Maya Forstater

Amid the cacophony surrounding the rights of trans people, a major shift in public policy occurred last week, the ramifications of which have barely been mentioned. In Maya Forstater’s recent appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, her strongly-held views about trans identity were held to be beliefs for the purposes of the Equality Act.

The Equality Act is designed to protect people from discrimination. Included in that definition, it is unlawful to discriminate against someone because of their religion or belief.

The human rights movement emerged out of the need to protect religion and belief. The driving force behind the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was the duty to ensure people could not be targeted because of their faith.

The human right to religion and belief includes all the obvious faiths and the obscure ones too. Druids cannot be denied, nor can the Druze. Belief for these purposes includes all beliefs that are central to a person’s sense of self. It is not just a belief in God that is protected. The evangelical Christian and the avowed atheist have no more rights than anyone else.

We win on government secrecy!

We’ve just won a

three-year transparency battle against Michael Gove’s department.

Can you help us keep fighting government secrecy?
