Britain's blind side

If things were not becoming more difficult for Christians in our country there is a sense in which we would be right to be worried. Jesus told us: ‘In this world you will have trouble’ (John 16.33). If we had none we might well be concerned that Jesus had got it wrong or that we were not following him properly.

March 1 saw the latest evidence of Bible Christianity being increasingly outlawed. The High Court refused permission for a Christian couple to challenge Derby City Council who had decreed that they could no longer act as foster carers because of their view that homosexual behaviour is wrong. What is interesting is that Christians are being stopped from doing good deeds which normally are viewed with admiration.
