Evang. Alliance: No Government Support for Religious Services

The Evangelical Alliance’s Head of Public Affairs Don Horrocks told Third Sector magazine that ministerial pledges of support for religious charities had so far come to nothing. In contrast to public pronouncements, Don Horrocks said that new measures such as the Equality Bill displayed prejudice towards Christian groups.

Mr Horrocks said he had seen no real evidence of Government support for faith-based charities, which it needs to help deliver services. Instead he pointed to the Equality Bill which “could potentially force Christian groups, by threat of legal action, to effectively have their faith identities emasculated so they are prevented from delivering their services in a Christian way” Source: http://www.christian.org.uk/news/government-failing-to-support-faith-groups/
