Whilst the main stream media does not recognise this subject, the fact remains through the recent changes in the law and attitude, Christians have been arrested and charged with hate crimes over preaching the Gospel on the streets of Great Britain.
Only a few years ago you would have thought that this would be impossible, but we are now in a new phase in the UK of pretending to be tolerant, in allowing Muslims to preach whatever they want from the Koran but Christians cannot use the Bible to share or preach.
As a result of this the Barnabus Fund have an on-line partition to ask the Government to provide a new law to protect Religious freedom. This means that anybody can debate or evangelise their faith without fear of persicution.
Very simply, it will protect people. It is important that we, as a society, recognise that all people can hold their worldview and beliefs without discrimination or persecution.
They want a law that establishes permanent freedom of thought, religion and expression in line with international agreements and covenants of human rights.
It must positively affirm the freedoms TO practise, share and change one’s beliefs without government interference or societal persecution.
It must also affirm the freedom from being required to support a particular worldview or set of beliefs in order to hold a public sector job (except where this is a genuine occupational requirement such as chaplaincy posts); stand for election; work in teaching, healthcare and law; study at university; or give parental care to a child.
