Guyanan born head of the EHCR Trevor Phillips has stated that "an old time religion incompatible with modern society" is driving the revival in the Anglican and Catholic Churches and clashing with mainstream views, especially on homosexuality.

He accused Christians, and I assume that means all, and particularly evangelicals, of being more militant than Muslims in complaining about discrimination, arguing that many of the claims are motivated by a desire for greater political influence.
However the chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission expressed concern that people of faith are "under siege" from atheists whom he accused of attempting to "drive religion underground".
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph ahead of a landmark report on religious discrimination in Britain, he said the Commission wants to protect Christians and Muslims from discrimination, admitting his body had not been seen to stand up for the people discriminated against because of their faith in the past.
In a wide-ranging intervention into the debate over the role of religion in modern Britain, Mr Phillips:
* warned it had become "fashionable" to attack and mock religion, singling out atheist polemicist Richard Dawkins for his idiotic atheist views;
* said faith groups should be free from interference in their own affairs, meaning churches should be allowed to block women and homosexuals from being priests and bishops;. the British national party is a faith group, we have faith in our cause, why persecute us then Phillips?
* attacked hardline Christian groups which he said were picking fights - particularly on the issue of homosexuality - for their own political ends; which are the attempt to stop the islamifaction of Britain
* told churches and religious institutions they had to comply with the fascist equality legislation when they delivered services to the public as a whole.
The report, published by the Commission tomorrow, says that some religious groups have been the victims of rising discrimination over the last decade.
It shows that in the course of the last decade, the number of employment tribunal cases on religion or belief brought each year has risen from 70 to 1000 - although only a fraction of cases were upheld.
Mr Phillips spoke after a series of high-profile cases which have featured Christians claiming they have been discriminated against because of their beliefs, with a doctor currently fighting a reprimand from the General Medical Council for harmlessly sharing his faith with a patient. and the case of the hoteliers persecuted for not allowing two sodomites to practice their perversion under their roof.
While the equalities boss promised to fight for the rights of Christians,which will most likely be only a form of lip service in our view of the matter. he expressed concern that many cases were driven by fundamentalist Christians who are holding increasing sway over the mainstream churches because of the influence of African and Caribbean immigrants with "intolerant" views, although we at Horwich Nationalists have no indication of what the views are,and are more likely to based on African superstitions and not Christian beliefs, and also it is a statement that is a sad indictment of how far the British sense of religious and political sense of fair play has been eroded by the mass immigration of alien cultures and peoples into our homeland!
In contrast, Muslims are less vociferous because they are trying to integrate into British "liberal democracy", he said. although the victims of the 7/7 bombings may disagree we say, he also stated
"I think there's an awful lot of noise about the Church being persecuted but there is a more real issue that the conventional churches face that the people who are really driving their revival and success believe in an old time religion which in my view is incompatible with a modern, multi-ethnic, multicultural society," Phillips said.
"Muslim communities in this country are doing their damnedest to try to come to terms with their neighbours to try to integrate and they're doing their best to try to develop an idea of Islam that is compatible with living in a modern liberal democracy. OH Ye! pimping young white girls and abusing of British soldiers amongst other things come to mind.
"The most likely victim of actual religious discrimination in British society is a Muslim but the person who is most likely to feel slighted because of their religion is an evangelical Christian." that last statement just shows from which angle Phillips is coming from in our view at Horwich Nationalists.
Senior clergy, including Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, have attacked equality laws for eroding Christianity and stifling free speech, but Phillips said many of the legal cases brought by Christians on issues surrounding homosexuality were motivated by an attempt to gain political influence. Phillips perhaps you are not realising that people are just fed up of the unnatural posing as normality
"I think for a lot of Christian activists, they want to have a fight and they choose sexual orientation as the ground to fight it on," he said.
"I think the whole argument isn't about the rights of Christians. It's about politics. It's about a group of people who really want to have weight and influence."
He added: "There are a lot of Christian activist voices who appear bent on stressing the kind of persecution that I don't think really exists in this country." how sad and out of touch can you be Phillips.
However, Mr Phillips, who claims to be a  Salvationist from a strong Christian background, expressed concern over the rise in Britain of anti-religious voices, such as Richard Dawkins, who are intolerant of people of faith.
"I understand why a lot of people in faith groups feel a bit under siege," he said. a little like all the indigenous people and culture of these lands Phillips.
"There's no question that there is more anti-religion noise in Britain.
"There's a great deal of polemic which is anti-religious, which is quite fashionable."
Phillips said that the Commission is committed to protecting people of faith against discrimination and also defended the right of religious institutions to be free from Government interference.
The Church of England is under pressure to allow openly gay clergy to be made bishops, while the Catholic Church only permits men to be priests, but the head of the Government-funded equalities watchdog said they are entitled to rule on their own affairs.
"The law doesn't dictate their organisation internally, in the way they appoint their ministers and bishops for example," he said.
"It's perfectly fair that you can't be a Roman Catholic priest unless you're a man. It seems right that the reach of anti-discriminatory law should stop at the door of the church or mosque.
"I'm not keen on the idea of a church run by the state.
"I don't think the law should run to telling churches how they should conduct their own affairs.".Well that is a double standard hypocritical approach to life Mr Phillips if people should be free to run their Church free from the Fascist equality laws then WHY NOT IN POLITICS ALSO! and life in general.  And why did your commission PURSUE THE BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY ?, WHEN IF IT IS OK FOR A CHURCH TO DISCRIMINATE ON MEMBERSHIP THEN WHY NOT IN POLITICS !!!!!! ?
The intervention by the Commission comes after criticism of its £70 million annual unaudited we believe  budget, which is to be cut drastically. Which leads me to conclude that the statement by Phillips has nothing to do with religion but purely politics, and in our belief the continuation of a nice little earner!
Mr Phillips, a former Labour chairman of the Greater London Assembly and television producer was criticised for his £110,000 a year salary and was accused of "pandering to the right" by Ken Livingstone, the former Labour London mayor, for saying that multiculturalism had failed.
