A judge in London has ruled that Trafford Housing Trust near Manchester was wrong in demoting a manager who said on his Facebook page -- on his own time -- that homosexual "weddings" in churches would be" an equality too far."

Appearing on Sky News, Mike Judge of The Christian Institute was asked if the ruling means Smith will get his job back.

Judge, Mike (The Christian Institute)"Well, that's yet to be decided," Judge responded, "[but] he has won in court. He's overjoyed about that. He had tears in his eyes when the high court judge stood up and said, Adrian, you've done nothing wrong.

"It's been two years. It's been a nightmare for him," Judge continued, "but he's yet to discover will Trafford Housing Trust give him his position back."

The court awarded the equivalent of $160 (U.S.) in damages, but Judge says it was never about the money. He adds that the fear is that if Britain legalizes homosexual marriage, it will be difficult for people like Smith to speak their views -- or win a legal case, if they do so.
