RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS POLICY
In ENGAGE we believe that every person should always have the freedom to make their own choices on anything, regardless of whether others agree with them or not – So long as it does not contravene UK Law. It is not for us to dictate to others on what they should or should not believe. In ENGAGE we believe that Britain is inherently a Christian country and as a British party we will always defend Christianity first and foremost.
ENGAGE believes that our government has a public responsibility to stop ignoring illegal acts committed by some members of religious groups:
• Child Brides
• Grooming gangs
• Honour Killings
• Terror support
To name a few.
Government authorities need to prosecute them in the same way they would if these acts were perpetrated by any other member of society. There is only one rule of law in the UK and that should be applied in the same way to everyone who lives here, without any exceptions.
We also advocate that some beliefs and behaviours presented by some religious groups, even if not illegal in current law are not compatible with a western modern day society and therefore the law should be adjusted to make them illegal. For example
- Sharia Courts
• Ritual Slaughter
Finally, we believe that no religion or tradition should be an excuse for intolerance or discrimination for fellow society members in regards to race, religion, gender or sexual behaviour. Unfortunately, there are many examples where some members of religious groups are breaching that rule. It is also clear that all religions seem to be flexible on which parts of their holy book they adhere to in a modern day society, the book of Vayiqra in regards to homosexuality being one clear example and the Quran states it is not permissible for Muslims to settle in Kaafir lands or to live among the Kuffaar. As this flexibility is clearly apparent already then it should not be too much to ask others to respect our religion and our law here in the UK.
In ENGAGE we do respect all religions and would never go against anything on a religious argument, for example we would not seek to ban the importing of Halal or Kosha food but we cannot condone anything that goes against our own belief that Britain is fundamentally a Christian country, our own rules of morality and most certainly not anything that would contravene UK rule of law. We fully understand the delicacy of this issue and would work with any religious groups to help find a mutual solution but we will always defend the British way of life, culture and religion, first and foremost. In the exact same way as we expect any other country to defend their own but when appeasement threatens to change the way Britons live their own life, then it has to be an issue that is addressed and never permitted.
