Proposed Visit of Franklin Graham

12 Dec. 2017

In relation to the below, whilst Lancashire Secular Humanists do not condone certain messages attributed to Franklin Graham, we do strongly advocate ‘freedom of expression/speech’ under Article 10 of the Human Rights Act.

However, we would expect that if comments are made that could constitute offences under criminal law, for example a relevant ‘hate crime’, they would be dealt with by the relevant authorities.

We would further welcome the opportunity to be involved in the ‘Festival of Hope’ to ensure that the views of all communities are represented.
