Advert asking Christians’ tales of workplace discrimination banned25 November 2013 | by Christopher Lamb
The Court of Appeal has upheld a ban on an advert which asked Christians to report experiences of marginalisation in the workplace.
Premier Christian Radio, via its two companies, challenged a 2011 decision by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, to ban the advert after the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre claimed it had a political objective.
The original advert – which was published in The Daily Telegraph last Wednesday – asked for Christians to share their experience of marginalisation in the workplace so that the magazine arm of Premier could compile accurate data on the matter.
