The Impact of Equality Legislation on the Church in the EU

Date recorded: 26 May 2014 | Speaker: Roger Kiska | Event: ELF Politics and Society Network


The creation of so-called "equality" legislation has become a leading agenda priority of intergovernmental bodies like the European Union and the United Nations. Domestic governments, taking a cue from the international institutions, have also exponentially expanded their anti-discrimination legislation. The result has been that in the Trojan horse of tolerance, Christian rights of freedom of expression, conscience, and religious freedom have been tread upon, reduced, and even ignored in the promotion of homosexual behavior as a lifestyle choice and the non-existent right not to be offended. Without immediate action, the legal consequences to the body of Christ could become irreversible. Changes in what the law defines as discrimination will also make it harder for non-believers and seekers to realize moral truths and for people of faith to evangelize them as a result. The purpose of this talk will be to both raise awareness of the seriousness of the threat at hand and to come up with a systematic approach to reclaiming our rights as believers and to keep the doors of Europe open for the spread of the gospel.
