Christian registrar who won - gay marriage' case has illegitimate child

Jul 15, 2008 | Posted by: Ziggy on High | Full story: www.pinknews.co.uk

A civil registrar who claimed her Christian belief is so fundamental that she cannot not conduct civil partnerships is an unmarried single mother.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Lillian Ladele also revealed that her relationship with the father of her son has "collapsed."

During an employment tribunal Ms Ladele, 47, who was born and raised in Nigeria, claimed that she was discriminated against by Islington Council on the grounds of her religious belief.

She told the Mail that she gave birth to an illegitimate son when she was 20.

How typical.

The people who are usually the loudest about wanting everyone to follow strict fundamentalist Christian beliefs are often don't follow those rules themselves.

Christian fundamentalist should clean up their own house and let others live their lives as they see fit. It has never stopped amazing me how many people see the few vague and arguable references in the Bible to same sex conduct as having a great moral impact and the rest of the book as not applying, especially to themselves. Didn't Christ say, render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and unto God that which is God's." Her job duties as a public employee are set by Caesar (the Government). She should do her job and practice her religion on her own time, and maybe try to follow her own rules.

She must think as a christian she only needs to follow some of their doctrine just as long as it doesn't interupt her own failings of her faith.

She has said, "As a Christian, I loved being able to help people, to talk to them when they needed advice, it's what my religion is all about and I think I have a lot of empathy." That comment apparently does not apply to homosexuals. She apparently has "selective" Christian beliefs. I blame this on her ignorance. She obviously doesn't understand the dispartiy in rights even when she was discriminated against. What's the term for doing things even though you know they are wrong or false?

This story is yet another sad example of the abuses of Christianity or any religious belief in the world today, it's always much easier to inflict it on somebody else than actually have to live it yourself.

"Milked" is more like it. Nutt'in but doze to pull.
She should be familiar with that seeing that, according to the un-holy bible, she is an unwed prostitute and should be stoned at the city gates!

It's a poo that I could not use a perfectly biblical word instead of "prostitute" in the above. It was "w h o r e". It is in the bible, at lease several false versions, but the Censors would not let me use it. Christians get to call us whatever they want but we can't even use the Bible's OWN false words!

Yes, equality means everyone has the right to marry. Separate but equal institutions don't work.

That really makes no sense at all. HER mistake was getting knocked up without marriage. She will resent that child for the rest of her life.(I've seen it many times before.) That poor kid doesn't deserve that.

The couples who she is refusing actually WANT to get married and start families with kids that will be truly WANTED. They are trying what she didn't have the sense to do.

Who is trying to make the better choice here? Certainly isn't this hypocrite of woman.
