UK Councils win back the right to pray as minister Eric Pickles enacts new law early

UK Councils win back the right to pray as minister Eric Pickles enacts new law early February 18, 2012

Interesting new step in the current war over religious freedom in the UK.  Eric Pickles said.

“By effectively reversing that illiberal ruling, we are striking a blow for localism over central interference, for freedom to worship over intolerant secularism, for Parliamentary sovereignty over judicial activism, and for long-standing British liberties over modern-day political correctness.”

He added that the Bideford council case should be “a wake-up call”.

“For too long, the public sector has been used to marginalise and attack faith in public life, undermining the very foundations of the British nation. But this week, the tables have been turned.”
