British Christians Targets of Discrimination

Ad Feedback

Britain was once the missionary base for the world. But today, Christianity is under attack in that country. And British Christians are often the targets of bigotry and discrimination.

Leaders of the Church of England have accused Britain's judges of being prejudiced against Christians and Christianity, after a string of rulings against people of faith, including a nurse who was banned from hospital wards for wearing a crucifix.

She lost her case in a country where Christianity is the official state religion.

In today's Britain, Christians who take their faith into the public square risk being ostracized, demoted, or fired. There has also been a steady push to criminalize Christian speech and practice.

Rev. George Hargreaves, leader of Britain's Christian Party spoke with CBN news about the severity of anti-Christian bigotry in Britain.  Click play to watch.
