Articles

October 5th, 2018 | Freedom, Freedom of Speech
Dear 'One Scotland', Do you really think that churches are teaching people to be hateful towards others? Or to be violent towards people we disagree with? Why not pop into a church sometime and find out what we really think? Love, Some Christian friends
The government is currently consulting the public on possible changes to the Gender Recognition Act 2004. In this article, Carys Moseley shows what transgender campaign groups are calling for.
October 1st, 2018 | Family, Family and Sexual Ethics
God created men and women in his image, giving them the task of filling and subduing the newly-created world (Genesis 1). From then on, God set up families - led by one man and one woman, married for life - as the basic building block of society, giving them the responsibility to bring up godly children.
Carys Moseley looks at recent developments in the government’s ‘anti-extremism’ measures and how they could be used to restrict Christian freedoms.
September 28th, 2018 | Abortion, Life and Bioethics
Fears have been growing that an early-pregnancy blood test used to detect genetic conditions – set to be used by the NHS from next month – could lead to a rise in abortions based on gender. The Labour Party has called for a ban on using this test to find out the sex of the child, but still supports its use to find potential genetic conditions.
The very definition of ‘family’ is once more at risk as the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has taken legal action against the NHS for not giving transgender teenagers the chance to have children later in life.
The media has recently been full of reports on the consequences of people ‘self-identifying’ as the opposite sex (such as in the separate cases of Shaun Pudwell and Philip Bunce), but when 12 Girl Guides leaders signed a letter warning of the dangers of a Girlguiding transgender policy, they were penalised for being ‘intolerant’ and two Guides leaders were expelled.
As we celebrate ten years of Christian Concern, we're looking back and giving thanks for just some of what God has enabled us to do together to champion the issue of life.
Carys Moseley looks into how the issues of transgender and abortion are intrinsically linked and argues that the Church must speak up to protect the dignity of those affected and defend the fact that we are all created in God’s image.
September 19th, 2018 | Islam
Please pray for protection for a precious young woman the Christian Legal Centre is supporting, named Sarah. She has been rescued from a horrendous 12-year ordeal at the hands of an Islamic grooming gang, and desperately needs your prayers.
