Christians Face Persecution in Britain

On my way back to Hungary on Sunday, I was reading the Sunday Telegraph newspaper on the plane, and was surprised to see this article about how Christians face persecution in British society.

The article says that according to a poll, almost half of Christians in Britain feel that they are being rejected or discriminated against at work and at home because of their Christian faith. New laws are being proposed by an atheist group to forbid people from sharing their faith in their workplace, classifying it as harassment, and grounds for firing. Three out of four people polled said that there is less religious freedom in Britain now than 20 years ago.

This is sad news coming from Britain, which has historically been such a bastion of Christianity, but I think this is fairly characteristic of Europe in general. At least its being admitted and reported on in Britain.

Check out the full article here.
