The arguments of the 'Christians are being discriminated against' lobby in the UK are confused about the law, equalities, rights, demography, theology and the distinction between Christianity and Christendom, says Simon Barrow. In the words of a recent High Court judgment, their claims are also "wrong as to the factual premises on which they are based and at best tendentious."
Christian Concern For Our Nation (CCFON) launched a new campaign yesterday (21 September) entitled “Not Ashamed”. It aims to encourage Christians to “stand up for Jesus Christ in public life”.
I am not ashamed to be a Christian active in public life, but I will not be wearing one of the “Not Ashamed” badges. This is because the campaign aims to encourage only a certain sort of Christian to engage in particular forms of public life.
