“Totally without merit” Christian lawyers fail again
The zombie-worshipping pettifoggers at the Christian Legal Centre just can’t seem to get their day in court. Fresh from the humiliation of having their “Jesus’ Penis” case stopped by the CPS, they have just been informed by the High Court that their test case against the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) is
totally without merit
and unworthy of a hearing.
Licences have been granted to Newcastle University and Kings College London to undertake inter-species research which could lead to breakthroughs in treatment for diseases such as cancer, HIV/Aids, Parkinson’s, and strokes.
To the Bible-befuddled brains at the CLC and Comment on Reproductive Ethics (Core), this was clearly a step too far. To the judge at the High Court, thankfully, their challenge was “unarguable”.
Newly nicknamed Andrea “Totally Without Merit” Minichiello Williams was particularly upset because they were ordered to pay £20,000 costs, too:
This is a sad day for justice in this country. We see a public interest body, with little funds and no other way of challenging matters of huge ethical and legal importance, being penalised with a £20,000 costs bill.
Maybe the message will get through eventually: the reason you keep getting knocked back is because you are irrelevant, outnumbered, and – more often than not – profoundly wrong.
