British Prime Minister welcomed in White House ceremony

IRLA joins 'pomp and ceremony' at White House event

Dwayne Leslie, IRLA deputy secretary general, was an invitee at a ceremony welcoming British Prime Minister David Cameron to the United States.IRLA deputy secretary general, Dwayne Leslie, was a guest at the White House March 14 as President Barack Obama welcomed British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha Cameron, for a three-day official visit to the United States. Just two days ago, Prime Minister Cameron indicated, though a spokesperson, that he may consider introducing legislation to increase protection of religious freedom in Britain. This comes as two British Christians have filed suit against the UK in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, claiming that British laws don’t adequately protect their religious freedoms. The two women—a flight attendant and a nurse—were fired for wearing a crucifix necklace to work. [IRLA]
