Church of England Calls for Religious Protections

The Church of England wants legal protection for Christians who wear crosses or share their faith at work, according to the London Daily Mail.
Church leaders said they'd met with ministers to talk about how employers often try to suppress expressions of faith at work and how British courts often side with the businesses. 

'We have had a sympathetic hearing and look forward to practical responses," Dr. Philip Giddings, chairman of the Church's Mission and Public Affairs Council, told the General Synod.
Giddings said under the current law, it's okay for Christians to express their views. But he notes that businesses don't always see it that way.

"Some employers have interpreted the law in ways which seem to assume that reasonable and respectful expressions of faith are, almost by definition, offensive. This is a cause of great concern."
