As a practising Christian I am aware of how much the UK has strayed from its Christian roots and how as a result many of our fundamental religious freedoms are being eroded.

The UK lead the world in developing freedom of religion and belief, in spreading the idea of religious freedom across the globe.

However, today, that heritage is being turned upside down mainly due to an increasingly intolerant secular humanism on Christians and Christian churches.

As a society we don’t know or don’t care about our history. The tragedy is that today the sacrifices of our ancestors have been forgotten and the liberties which they struggled so hard to gain are being eroded.

It’s time for a new generation to rise up and reclaim this great heritage of religious freedom, before it is lost forever.

I am proud to be joining the Barnabas Fund’s new campaign “Our Religious Freedom” so that we can reclaim religious freedom in the UK and see a new Act of Parliament passed to guarantee religious freedom.

Today I am launching a new petition on the UK Government website to ask the Government to guarantee our religious freedom.
