Target: Islington Council

Petition Background (Preamble):

A marriage registrar was harassed for refusing to conduct same-sex ceremonies, a tribunal has ruled.

Lillian Ladele, who said the civil partnership ceremonies went against her Christian faith, hailed the decision as a "victory for religious liberty".

The tribunal ruled that Miss Ladele was discriminated against on grounds of religious beliefs and was harassed.

Islington council said it was "disappointed" and was considering an appeal against the ruling.

Petition:

We urge Islington Council to appeal the catastrophic judgement made regarding marriage registrar Lillian Ladele.

Public servants like registrars have a duty to serve all members of the
public without fear or favour.
