Christian policeman loses disciplinary hearing in gay row

A Christian policeman who objected to the ‘aggressive’ promotion of homosexual rights within the Norfolk Constabulary in the UK has lost a disciplinary hearing brought against him by his police force.

Constable Graham Cogman, who had previously threatened to take Norfolk Police to an employment tribunal, had taken offence at the large number of posters advertising gay events.

"The blatant support for homosexual rights in Norfolk Police makes being a Christian officer extremely difficult," he told the Mail on Sunday in July.

Mr Cogman has refuted any allegation that he is 'homophobic', arguing that he only sought equal space for the Christian viewpoint in the Police.

He is currently seeking further advice regarding what action to take next.
