Christian magistrate who said it was better for children to be raised by a mother & father rather than gays loses battle to win back his job

A Christian magistrate who was sacked for saying it was better for children to be bought up by a father and mother rather than a gay couple has lost a legal battle to keep his job with the NHS.

Richard Page, 71, sued Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt after he was suspended from his role as a non-executive director at a hospital trust following complaints from gay and lesbian staff.
