Christians in the United Kingdom don't have the right to refuse work on Sundays because it is not a "core component" of their beliefs, a judge has ruled. The case concerned devout Christian Celestine Mba, who was fired for refusing to work on Sundays at a nursing home. The judge said that since some Christians were prepared to work on their Sabbath, the right to refuse work was not protected. That has provoked criticism from some Christian groups, who have highlighted cases where courts offered protection to other religions even when only a minority of followers were impacted. [Source]
