Sir Jonathan Evans is a former director-general of MI5 and an expert on counter terrorism wrote in today’s Daily Telegraph:
“The forthcoming Counter-Extremism Bill aims to crack down on extremism but definitions will be crucial, and implementation of the new powers will be fraught with risk. One can imagine already the powers being used against harmless evangelical street preachers or the like, out of misplaced zeal and a desire to demonstrate that they are not directed against one religion alone.”
Quite! We need to pray about this trend towards persecution.
