Court rules ’ethical veganism’ beliefs must be protected in law

Worker in the UK who indulge in ’ethical veganism’ secured a big win in an employment tribunal. The judge ruled that they are entitled to legal protection from job discrimination. The case was brought to court by a man who claimed he was fired after raising questions about pension fund investments in companies that test products on animals.

Veganism has always been a cult.

Does this mean being a carnivore and omnivore are protected as well? Or just vegans?

It's about time that Equality Act was sorted out. It's being abused by all sorts of fanatical activists and having an adverse effect on everyone in the UK.

this seems very reasonable. you shouldnt be able to fire someone for being outspoken about veganism just because it hurts your feelings

Can people who swear by the carnivore diet claim Ethical Carinvoreism? I don't see why vegan should get special treatment.

James Damore questions Google's far left policies, gets fired. Far left "ethical vegan" questions their company's policies, gets protected by the courts. The takeaway here is that only far left beliefs are acceptable.

Now Vegans can't say they aren't a religion or a cult. They always have been and they are still psycho.

Why are people in the EU so daft and deluded? I don't understand how they even arrive at such a twisted brand of morality and ethics. We used to hold the individual in the highest regard. Now many in Europe are willing to step all over the freedoms of the individual to elevate the comfort of the perceived collective majority. The gradual expansion of "rights" is rapidly eroding the importance of recognized rights as we know them.

he was fired from a animal rights charity, for being vegan. does not make sense. what i gather from the article is that, he shouldn't have been fired BECAUSE he is vegan. wow.

This only protects his right to not get fired because he commented on something. That does not mean hr has the right to enforce any limitation on how the company spend their money. If he doesnt like it, then he can quit. I do find it funny that vegetarians should only be about not EATING any animal, except a bunch of animals. It used to be that it described an animal trait of not being able to digest meat, for example. Now, with modern veganism it has turned into a religion and an activism group. It is not about your choice in what to consume, it is now about projecting your beliefs onto society.

Fuck are you talking about, ethical? Is there an unethical way to not eat animals? It's like ego justices..its just another buzz word to protect progressives from criticism.
