 04/14/2012 United Kingdom (Christian Today) UK Church Leader: Christians In Britain Are Being ‘Vilif

In a submission to the European Court of Human Rights, Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, said that Christians are being “vilified” by the state and face termination from their jobs for their faith. His appeal was made in connection to the cases of four British Christians who have experienced disciplinary action in the workplace for expressing their faith. In the submission seen by the Daily Telegraph, Lord Carey said there was a “drive to remove Judaeo-Christian values from the public square” and that some believers were being treated as “bigots.” “In a country where Christians can be sacked for manifesting their faith, are vilified by State bodies, are in fear of reprisal or even arrest for expressing their views on sexual ethics, something is very wrong,” he said.

Pray that the four ongoing cases would be resolved in favor of religious freedom.
Pray that Christians in the UK become bold to oppose this discrimination.
Pray that discrimination in the UK decreases rather than increases.

Its going to be an even greater challenge for British Christians in the coming years. Long before Hitler came to power, there was a general anti-semantism through-out Europe. When he came to power the die was already set. The tinder is being set for the coming persecution of Christians............bro Frank
