“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.”
