    Public Morals Committee responds to "Conscience clause" consultation

    RESPONSE TO THE CONSULTATION ON THE NORTHERN IRELAND FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE AMENDMENT BILL - February 2015 

    Dear Mr Givan, 

    The Evangelical Presbyterian Church, is increasingly concerned with the marginalisation of Christians in the UK. The recent Ashers Bakery case highlights great inequality in how some groups within our society have their beliefs protected while others are now being persecuted for their beliefs. As such we believe that a Freedom of Conscience Bill is needed for our Province. In particular, the NI Sexual Orientation Regulations should be amended to protect Christians so they are no longer asked to go against their conscience by “equality” law. 

    We believe the Christian conscience has been and continues to be a morally good and stabilising effect on society as a whole. In accordance with Matthew 5:13,14 we seek to be salt and light in a fallen world. Sadly the state has moved away from this Biblical perspective and the secularising agenda is now working against the church, and is beginning to persecute those whose core belief is to love God and love our neighbour as ourselves. 

    We therefore appreciate every effort to amend our legislation to ensure that there is even-handedness for all whose conscience is bound by what they believe. It is our prayer that Christians will be protected by the state when asked to go against conscience by promoting, endorsing or facilitating homosexuality. We want to see protection for the likes of Ashers and other family run Christian businesses, without the victimisation of any other group in society. 

    We fully support your amendment clause and pray that you will know of wide support from many others churches, as well as from others outside the church who also value their right to live out their beliefs in the workplace without persecution. 

    Yours sincerely, 
    Robert Johnston.
