Evangelical Alliance seeks wider debate on blasphemy laws

The Evangelical Alliance has voiced support for a Government consultation on proposals to abolish blasphemy laws. In a debate in the Commons on Wednesday, the Government rejected the proposals from Lib Dem MP Evan Harris on the grounds that it wanted time to consult with the Church of England first.

The Evangelical Alliance warned that abolishing the blasphemy laws may erode the special place of the sacred in society, and urged the Government to extend the consultation beyond the Church of England to include other faith groups.
