US State Department on Religious Freedom in the UK

The US State Department has issued its annual report on Religious Freedom in the world including the UK. It can be read at

I was actually contacted by the US Embassy in London earlier this year and asked to comment and add to their existing report so it is nice to see that they have kept in all the parts where I expressed concern about the direction of policy in Britain and the way in which religious freedom is increasingly being restricted by the misuse of Discrimination laws and "hate crimes"

In general however the main value of the report is providing a concise description of the legal and constitutional status, legislation and organisation of religions in the UK and is worth reading for that reason alone
