First 84 words of the document:
The government is facing allegations of duplicity over changes
to the equality bill after a leaked document showed
conflicting statements about the position of churches and
other religious organisations.
Churches say the government has assured them the equality
bill will preserve their "special status", which allows them to
turn down candidates for jobs as ministers or priests if they
are actively homosexual, transsexual or, in the Catholic
church, if they are women.
