(London Daily Mail) A Christian housing worker who was demoted for criticising gay marriage on Facebook today won his battle to get his job back.

Adrian Smith, 55, lost his managerial position, had his salary cut by 40 per cent and was given a final written warning by Manchester’s Trafford Housing Trust after posting that gay weddings in churches were ‘an equality too far’.

Mr Smith was today awarded less than £100 compensation at London’s High Court after winning his legal action for breach of contract.

Mr Justice Briggs, ruling in his favor today, said he had ‘real disquiet’ about the limited financial award for Mr Smith, who was only paid the difference between his contractual salary and the amount he earned for the 12 weeks after he took on the reduced role.
