BHA: "Lord Carey's hyperbolic interventions on this issue are becoming as ludicrous as they are predictable"

Andrew Copson said, Lord Carey's hyperbolic interventions on this issue are becoming as ludicrous as they are predictable."

"His increasingly desperate attempt to work up a victim narrative where Christians are marginalised and persecuted has no basis in reality. Time and again the vast majority of the claims of discrimination against Christians that have been tested in the courts have been assessed by impartial judges and found baseless.

'Discrimination against non-Christians is in fact far more widespread than discrimination against Christians, and Christianity is still overly privileged in the UK. In almost one third of our state schools, preference is given to Christian parents in admissions over non-Christians, and to Christian staff over non-Christian staff.'
