“On the point about the right to manifest religion; under Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights that is a qualified right. You don't have the right to manifest your religion if the way in which you want to manifest your religion interferes to a disproportionate extent with someone else's right, including someone else's right to be treated without discrimination. The fact that your religion gives you an incentive to discriminate against other people doesn't give you a lawful excuse for doing that.”

“Mandating common worship is inappropriate for public institutions made up of people from different world views and faith backgrounds. It is also a misrepresentation of what worship actually is. Worship is a freely offered act of faith arising from a believing community. It is not something that can be imposed or required of everybody.”
