National Director of Christian Voice attacks 'aggressive secularism' in society


The head of the Roman Catholic church in Scotland has criticised what he calls 'aggressive secularism' in Britain.

In his Easter sermon, Cardinal Keith O'Brien warned that enemies of Christianity are attempting to remove God from the public sphere.

Stephen Green of Christian Voice explained the view on BBC Radio 5 live: "I don't think that secularists will be satisfied until Christians have no place at all in the public sphere."

"Secularism is an aggressive, almost religious, world-view," Green told presenter Stephen Nolan. "It won't tolerate any dissent."
