Are Christians really being persecuted in the UK?

Whatever the principle involved, I can't help thinking that wearing a crucifix on a necklace is relatively unimportant so can't understand why the employers concerned forbade it to begin with; or why the employee insisted. That does seem disproportionate on both sides - however I don't know the full facts.

However I can see that the marriage counsellor who refused to counsel gay couples was exhibiting unacceptable prejudice and actually refusing to do his job. If he believes it wrong to be gay, he can apply that to himself without interfering with the legitimate freedoms of others and effectively persecuting them.
Update: Yes, I agree that link was to a biased publication. Here's one to another publication:

Update 2: I realise now that I used the term "marriage counsellor", when I should have used someting like "relationship counsellor". Probably my age.....
