Despite being a religious, liberal muslim, I do think that “Religion and Beliefs” should not be protected characteristics as ultimately they are a choice and you can tell a lot about a person from the beliefs they hold, all ideas and belief systems should be subject to civil scrutiny.
AYE.

Nay. I believe it should remain a protected characteristic and nobody has convinced me otherwise.

They may be scrutinised and at this point I feel like the equality act bars us from that... I’ll abstain for now

Nay -Religion should be protected even if it is not a characteristic it should be protected under the equality act.

Nay. The author fails to realise that the Equality Act in no way prevents scrutiny of religions.
