Persecution?– I Think Not

I see that Lord Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury, is claiming that Christians are being persecuted in the UK.

What I see is that UK society is waking up to the fact that historical privilege accorded to religion to practise its bigotry and condemnation of others is being questioned.

Quite right too.

Humanity is better than you, Lord Carey. Get over it.

Oh, and I see that Shuggy has a few relevant examples over at his blog concerning Christian persecution. And I simply can’t resist mentioning Urban Grandier as an example of Christian persecution.

Motes and beams, George?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Thanks for the linkage. And your comment, which is showing on my dashboard but not on the blog for some reason I can’t fathom.
