The New Blasphemies
The Scottish Government is replacing an out-dated law on blasphemy but intending replacing it with new draconian legislation. DAR speaks out.
Interview with David Robertson
Freedom of Speech
This article embeds an interview with (Rev.) David Robertson speaking on moves by the Scottish Government to replace the current blasphemy law and form new legislation with even more stringent and wide-ranging legislation.
David, and many others, believe that such moves represent an extremely serious assault on freedom of speech and religion.
As a backdrop to these developments the SNP-led administration in Holyrood in conjunction with Police Scotland published a set of 'hate crime' posters in the public domain which were seen as a cleverly-disguised attack on Christians (and others) who might have particular views.
'We [will] be guilty before God if we stand before Him on the day of judgement and said: "Well, we said nothing".'
David Robertson , Director Third Space May 2020
