Christians unfairly targeted for hate crime prosecutions

Christians in Britain are being unfairly targeted for hate crime prosecutions, according to a new report by the Civitas think-tank.

The report, entitled A New Inquisition: Religious Persecution in Britain Today, also warns that existing hate crime legislation poses a danger to freedom of speech.

Jon Gower Davies, the report’s author, said: “Some police forces and the CPS [Crown Prosecution Service] seem to be interpreting statues in favour of ethnic and religious minorities and in a spirit hostile to members of the majority population, defined as ‘White’ or ‘Christian’.”
