The Religion of Rights
A reflection on a topical issue. Sir Roger Scruton argues that Europe needs to rediscover its Christian roots.
"European society", says Sir Roger Scruton, "is rapidly jettisoning its Christian heritage and has found nothing to put in its place save the religion of human rights".
But, he argues, this new "religion" delivers one-sided solutions since rights favour the person who can claim them - whatever the moral reasons for opposing them.
He says Europe needs to rediscover its Christian roots.
