A Christian nursery nurse is claiming unfair dismissal after losing her job because she said she told a gay colleague the Bible regards the practice of homosexuality as a sin.
Sarah Mbuyi said she made the comments only after being pressed on her beliefs by a colleague who initiated the conversation at Newpark Childcare in Highbury, north London, in January.
Mbuyi is being supported in her case by the Christian Legal Centre, whose chief executive, Andrea Williams, said the government had "seriously let down" Christians and criticised David Cameron for attempting to "mould Christianity to his political agenda".
Mbuyi, who is claiming unfair dismissal on grounds of religious discrimination, said: "When I said 'No, God does not condone the practice of homosexuality, but does love you and says you should come to Him as you are', [her colleague] became emotional and went off to report me to my manager."
At an internal disciplinary hearing, she said, she was confronted with her colleague's allegations, which included the claim that she herself had raised the issue of homosexuality on a number of occasions, which she denies. The nursery directors instantly dismissed her for gross misconduct.
"My disciplinary hearing was hopelessly one-sided because they put my accuser's claims to me as fact, without any forewarning and so I wasn't prepared. It seemed to me they had already made up their minds to justify sacking me, before hearing my side of the story, " Mbuyi said.
