A British judge has said Christian beliefs have no standing in the law, because they can't be proven.
Lord Justice John Grant McKenzie Laws made the statement in a ruling against a Christian counselor who sued his employer.
According to the Religion News Service, the counselor was fired after refusing to offer sex therapy to same-sex couples because it violated his Christian principles.
In his ruling, Laws wrote, "Religious faith is necessarily subjective, being incommunicable by any kind of proof or evidence," and that as far as the law is concerned, "a position held on purely religious grounds cannot therefore be justified."
Former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey said the ruling is "deeply worrying" and a sign that Britain is becoming a secular state rather than a neutral one.
