UK Government Acknowledges House of Lord's Amendment to "Insult Law"

The Adventrlp readers are being informed that the Home Secretary, Theresa May, on 14th January 2013 signalled that the Government would accept to remove the word "insulting" from Section 5 of the Public Order Act, 1986. Mrs May told the MPs that the House of Lord's amendment put forward by Lord Dear, a former Chief Constable and HM Inspector of Constabulary would not be challenged. She said,

"I respect the review taken by their Lordships. They had concerns which I know are shared by some in this House that Section 5 encroaches upon freedom of expression." [1]

The Peers had overwhelmingly voted 150 to 54 in favour of the change. It is the hope of the campaigners that the law which had been perceived as an infringement, will now enhance the public's freedom of speech, expression and religious liberty.

The European Sunday Alliance have identified three key areas as reasons to have legislation for a 'Work Free Sunday': 1. health & safety at work  2. time for family and 3. better social cohesion.

The following aricle recognizes all of these points to be of great value to individuals and society at large, however this does not change the fact that to legislate Sunday as an official day of rest would still remain unlawful.  Click the following link to read the full article.

European Sunday Weekly Rest Day Legislation Remains Unlawful

Please let us have your feedback on this article .

The "World Day for the Family" which was established by the United Nations[1] was held on May 15th 2012.  This year, the day was dedicated to what has been noted as two closely related topics: family and work.  Pope Benedict XVI made a plea for the "right to work and rest for families worldwide".

In his address the Pope stated that work should not hinder the family, but rather support and unite it, helping it to be open to life and to enter into a relationship with society and with the Church. I also hope that Sunday, the Lord's Day and weekly celebration of His Resurrection, will be a day of rest and an opportunity to strengthen family ties".

From a religious perspective the Pope's plea raises a number of important questions:

  1. What is the Lord's Day[2]
  2. How do we know which day is the Lord's Day
  3. What is the purpose of the Lord's Day

Your answers and comments on these points are most welcome and there will be a short paper posted soon giving our religious perspective on this call for a worldwide "Day of Rest".

We look forward to hearing from you.
