Sharia law debate: Christians invited to have their say
The Evangelical Alliance (EA) is inviting Christians to use its website to help set the agenda for discussions on faith and the law, following the Archbishop of Canterbury’s controversial lecture.
The Alliance will be inviting a group of church leaders, theologians and community practitioners to look at faith and law in the public square, and the impact this has on community relations and social cohesion.
The organisation is also keen to get the wider Christian community involved in this discussion, by feeding in their opinions to the debate through the Alliance website.
"We want to use this as a spring-board to find a way forward for those in our, and other, faith communities who feel disenfranchised on matters of conscience by the changing meaning of what it is to be British."
"We are encouraging the wider Christian community to join in this important conversation, by giving us their views through our website, which we will feed into our discussions.”
The Alliance will publish the findings of the consultation.
