Courts can't be "swayed by Christian values" or promote "virtue and morality", says UK judge

Sir James made the comments in a keynote address to the Law Society
Sir James Munby, president of the Family Division of the High Court, has said that only "secular" judges can serve a "multicultural" society, and that judges must not "be swayed by Christian values."
Sir James made the comments in a keynote address to the Law Society.
Anthony Ozimic, SPUC's communications manager, told LifeSiteNews.com: "This is not the first time that Sir James Munby has used his position to give succour to the idea that the move away from Judaeo-Christian morality represents progress.
"In SPUC's 2002 case against the British government over the morning-after pill, he used his position as judge to recount the history what he referred to as 'the crusade for sexual enlightenment in England', concluding 'We are at last in the modern world'. He referred to pro-abortion witnesses as 'very eminent medical experts', praised the pro-abortion Family Planning Association to the skies and argued passionately that the state had no right to restrict contraception.
"Far from being an impartial advocate of blind justice, Sir James is a promoter of the ideology of 'choice'." [LifeSiteNews.com, 31 October]
