found out why you think the way you do.
Apparently in the UK they are persecuting Christians and have an

same-sex marriages, or to admit homosexual people to their religious organisations, or allow them to join in their activities or use their premises if this would be contrary to their religious belief. In our view, the scope of the exemption in Regulation 16 gives adequate protection to the absolute right in Article 9(1) to freedom of conscience and religion.

In our view, the prohibitions on discrimination in the Regulations limit the manifestation of those
religious beliefs and that limitation is justifiable in a democratic society for the protection of the right of gay people not to be discriminated against in the provision of
goods, facilities and services."
