Britain’s Christians are being vilified, warns Lord Carey

By John Bingham, Telegraph

Lord Carey says worshippers are being “vilified” by the state, treated as “bigots” and sacked simply for expressing their beliefs.

The attack is part of a direct appeal to the European Court of Human Rights before a landmark case on religious freedom.
