[Autom. eng. transl.] The EC Directive. 2000/78 also determines (art. 4.2) that the Member States can maintain in the national legislation in force on the date of adoption of the Directive, or even provide in a future legislation that incorporates national practices in force at the date of adoption of the Directive, provisions which contemplate a difference in treatment based on religion or belief, in the case of professional activities of churches or other public or private organizations whose ethics is based on religion or personal beliefs. This difference, however, does not constitute discrimination where, due to the nature of these activities, or the context in which they are carried out, religion or personal beliefs represent an essential, legitimate and justified requirement for the performance of work, taking into account the organization ethics. This difference in treatment applies in the light of the provisions and constitutional principles of the Member States, as well as of the general principles of EU law, and cannot justify discrimination based on other grounds.
