The Equality Bill...

So the Pope is coming over to the UK and has fired off a few salvoes about how equality can go too far, huh? So what's got his goat?

Well, the Equality Bill is currently making it's way through Parliament. The Bill contains an Equality Duty that will require public bodies to think about different groups when planning and delivering services. There are already duties which currently cover disability, gender and race - the Equality Bill will replace these with a new duty which will also include religion and belief, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, and gender reassignment in full.

Scary, isn't it? Equality. Well, scary for those who remain in power through the politics of fear.
