Edinburgh Council apologises for discriminating against Christian ministry

The City of Edinburgh Council has admitted that they were wrong to cancel a Christian event on the basis of the beliefs of the keynote speaker. The authorities cancelled Destiny Ministries’ three-day conference, due to be held in Edinburgh’s Usher Hall in Summer 2020, after receiving a complaint about views held by guest speaker, American preacher Larry Stockstill. The Council have now acknowledged that it had “failed to meet its equalities duties to Destiny Ministries in terms of the Equality Act 2010 and therefore acted unlawfully.” It also admitted that it had failed to take account of Destiny’s rights as protected by the European Convention on Human Rights.
