(Christian Concern) — A Christian West End actress, Seyi Omooba, was removed from a leading role in a musical and dropped from her agency for a Facebook post citing the Bible over four years earlier.
With help from the Christian Legal Centre, she is launching a legal challenge of the theatre and the agency. The case raised the question of whether Christians have the freedom to hold and express Biblical mainstream views in public.
It also raises the issue of whether, as a society, we are allowed to hold and express opinions and interpretations of art, literature and drama in ways that are contrary to LGBT ideology. …
Since being released by the agency, Seyi has tried to find work in theatre but appears to have been blacklisted. One agency she approached for roles told her that: “Homophobia is illegal. It is not a matter of faith” and added that the agency would help her once she came “to her senses on this matter” and when she had “got away from the ideologies of your entire upbringing.”
