‘Tolerance is a two-way street’, church leader says

Via The Christian Institute:

The Church is facing “an ever increasing intolerance”, the new Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland has said, as he called for Christians to speak out boldly in the public square.

Revd Dr Ian McNie said that the Church must defend the right to freely express opinions which it disagrees with, but at the same time society should be tolerant of Christian viewpoints.

Dr McNie made the comments as he was formally elected and installed at the church’s General Assembly in Belfast.
