Report: ‘UK Christians are more militant and homophobic than Muslims

Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in its latest report claims that as compared to country’s Muslim minority (2 million), the Christian majority (51 million) is more militant and homophobic.

“There are a lot of Christian activist voices who appear bent on stressing the kind of persecution that I don’t think really exists in this country,” said Trevor Phillips, chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

Phillips told the Sunday Telegraph in an interview this weekend that while most actual cases of religious discrimination are against Muslims, Christians often complain of discrimination for cynical political reasons. The interview comes as the Equalities Commission is expected to issue a report on religious discrimination.

“The most likely victim of actual religious discrimination in British society is a Muslim but the person who is most likely to feel slighted because of their religion is an evangelical Christian.

“I think for a lot of Christian activists, they want to have a fight and they choose sexual orientation as the ground to fight it on. I think the argument isn’t about the rights of Christians. It’s about politics.”

He admitted that the EHRC had not stood up in the past for people complaining of religious discrimination, and said that “faith groups” should be free from government interference in their own affairs.

Churches, he said, should be allowed to block women and homosexuals from being priests and bishops. In the same interview, however, he said churches and religious institutions had to comply with equality legislation when they delivered services to the public as a whole.

Unlike intolerant evangelical Christians, Britain’s Muslims, he said, are “doing their damnedest to come to terms with their neighbours to try to integrate and they’re doing their best to try to develop an idea of Islam that is compatible with living in a modern liberal democracy.”

The front-runner anti-Muslim extremist groups, British National Party (BNP) and English Defense League (EDL), both claim to be pro-Jewish, pro-Israel. Furthermore, British government has always been controlled by the Jewish Lobby (British Friends of Israel, etc.).

  3. Government plans announced last week which will massively deregulate state funded schools have been criticised for their potential to increase religious discrimination against pupils teachers and parents..Teaching unions educationists local parents groups and policy monitoring bodies say it is vital that social inequality and discriminatory practices based on belief are not permanently locked into the school system through the proposed reforms..In a formal response to a parliamentary question last week on religious foundation schools admissions the government made it clear that it does not intend to prevent current or new faith schools from discriminating in their admissions. .Andrew Copson chief executive of the British Humanist Association has pointed out that religious discrimination in admissions goes against what was implied in the Coalition Agreement and against an explicit Liberal Democrat policy that no new schools would be able to discriminate in admissions.
