Is Talking About Jesus Hate Speech? Censorship and Freedom of Speech

What if your opinions on marriage, family, and human dignity are based on the Bible but are considered ‘offensive’ to unbelievers? Are you still allowed to express them in public and private settings? It is a prerogative of healthy democratic societies that speech will not be banned, even if and when someone profoundly disagrees with its content or finds it ‘offensive’ or ‘disturbing’. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees freedom of expression as a fundamental freedom. Despite all of this, freedom of expression is increasingly restricted in Europe, especially through the so-called ‘hate speech’ legislation. Is talking about Jesus’ teaching hate speech? Are we witnessing a new form of censorship? Is one of our most fundamental freedoms at threat in Europe? How should we respond?
