An Employment Tribunal has rejected a claim by Richard Page that he should be instated as a non-executive director at Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust.
Andrea Williams from the Christian Legal Centre, which has been supporting the 71 year old, told Premier: “Simply for holding a perfectly lawful view, a view that many people would hold up and down the country, this gentleman finds himself removed from public office.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
