Cardinal Nichols’ conflation of secularism and religious persecution is self-serving and shameful

It’s grossly distasteful to equate the persecution of Christians in the Middle East with the discomfort felt by some Christians in Britain at having to provide services in a non-discriminatory manner, argues Alastair Lichten.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols’s recent column in the Telegraph, entitled ‘What are our leaders doing about religious persecution?’ seemed to start off on the right track. The issue of religious persecution around the world should concern us all. The next Government must do more. It should appoint an ambassador for freedom of religion and belief. It should push for the global abolition of blasphemy and anti-conversion laws – which are used so widely against Christians and others.
