Stop Cowering Church

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Motherwell has called on his church in Scotland to stop "cowering" before the government.

Rev Joseph Devine warned Christians against the "creeping political correctness" that was stifling religious expression and said

"The situation is that there are people in authority in this country who are determined to stamp out all Christian influence. They regard the Church as a social nuisance."

Bishop Devine also claimed there was "worrying evidence" that the law was being used to "intimidate and silence" the expression of Christian views.
