Two articles have appeared on the BBC News website recently both of which have big implications for Christianity in the UK but also for Christians in other places. The articles; Christian students in legal fight and Faith rally over gay rights bill both discuss how Christians will no longer be able to discriminate on the basis of faith. In other words, a university Christian Union could well find itself being led by an atheist and a village church may not be able to refuse to loan it's hall and facilities out to a civil union for homosexuals.
This is a not so thin end of a very thick wedge which is clearly aimed directly at the heart of Christianity and the fundamental belief of Christian's that Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and no-one comes to the Father except through Him. I can see a time coming when it will be illegal in the UK and other supposedly rational liberal democracies to preach the gospel in any way shape or form.
I don't want to get political, although this does make me angry, rather this should spur us on to pray against such blatant attacks on our faith and our basic human rights to be able to exercise our faith without fear or prejudice.
