March 12th, 2019 | Freedom of Speech
The video of the arrest of Pastor Oluwole Ilesanmi has sparked outrage from Christians and non-Christians alike across the UK and the globe. But the story does not end with his arrest, it gets worse. Here Christian Concern's Tim Dieppe explains what happened and how the actions of the police have been exposed.

Felix Ngole's case will be heard on 12 and 13 March 2019 at the Court of Appeal. The case could have significant implications for the free speech of some 6 million regulated professionals in the UK.
March 8th, 2019 | Islam
In November 2018, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims released a report ‘Islamophobia Defined’, urging the government to adopt a legal definition of Islamophobia. Certainly, anti-Muslim hatred and discrimination need to be addressed, but the report and its definition are problematic and only likely to make the problem worse. Tim Dieppe examines the report and the proposed definition and finds that adopting this definition will seriously inhibit free speech.
March 7th, 2019 | Family and Sexual Ethics
The news that one of the governors of the Tavistock gender clinic recently resigned brings the whole organisation and its ideologies into question, yet there is a great unwillingness to speak publicly about the real dangers of allowing under-18s to ‘transition’ gender. Carys Moseley says now is the time to investigate what really goes on in the Gender Identity Development Service for Children and Adolescents.
After the recent release of results from the Ozanne Foundation Faith and Sexuality Survey, members of the press were quick to report on the ‘shocking’ statistics, which allegedly showed that a fifth of homosexual people who try to change their sexuality attempt suicide. Carys Moseley explains why that, and other findings, are hugely inaccurate and concludes that the press must be careful to report the truth.
March 1st, 2019 | Church and State
Who's to blame for the cultural marginalisation of Christianity? Although some Christians are quick to blame secularists or neo-pagans, P. Andrew Sandlin (Center for Cultural Leadership) argues that it is due to the timidity, compromise, and cowardice of the Church.
March 1st, 2019 | Abortion
On Wednesday 27 February, Christian Legal Centre's Roger Kiska gave evidence to a parliamentary hearing on human rights and the abortion law in Northern Ireland. Here, he explains the issues at stake and why Westminster ought not to seek to overrule Northern Ireland's laws.
On Saturday 23 February, Oluwole Ilesanmi, a Christian street preacher and former dentist, was arrested outside Southgate tube station in London for ‘breaching the peace’. The police have said that they were called by a member of the public who had complained that the preacher was being ‘Islamophobic’ as he shared the gospel with passers-by. The video of the preacher’s arrest has caused outrage, not just in the UK, but across the world and has gone viral.
February 27th, 2019 | Education, Freedom, Religious Freedom
Over 100 people attended a rally outside Parliament on 25 February after a petition with over 109,000 signatures forced a debate in the House of Commons about proposals to revise relationships and sex education in schools. Despite the protests, the Education Secretary announced that the final education guidelines on what will be taught in statutory relationships, sex and health lessons will come into force from September 2020.
On Wednesday 20 February, Bishop Pete Broadbent, the Bishop of Willesden, answered a range of questions from the General Synod of the Church of England on the highly controversial transgender liturgy guidance published last year by the House of Bishops. Carys Moseley looks at the most serious questions put to him and assesses his answer on behalf of the Bishops.
