Religious Freedom

Britain’s Christian heritage has encouraged religious freedom and tolerance. UK and European law largely protects an individual’s right to hold and manifest religious beliefs, although this is fast being eroded. We are witnessing an increasing restriction of religious freedom in this country. Increasing numbers of Christians have been penalised for their faith in the public sphere, often due to equalities legislation and the promotion of homosexual rights. Some Christians have been threatened with disciplinary action, suspended, and even sacked for refusing to act against their consciences. At Christian Concern we vigorously resist any restrictions on freedom of speech and expression for Christians.
