The United Kingdom is the home of the Magna Carta, one of the foundations for the world’s understanding of rights, including religious rights.

The organization that works in support of persecuted Christians around the globe said it is now lobbying for a new act of Parliament “to guarantee seven fundamental aspects of freedom of religion.”
“These seven freedoms have developed in the U.K. by various mechanisms over the last five centuries but are now under threat. A law to protect and guarantee them is urgently needed,” Barnabas announced.
