'Sleepwalking to losing religious freedoms'?

The chief executive of CARE has warned that Britain is in danger of "sleepwalking into losing religious freedoms". In her recent speech she said:

"A philosophy of human rights is emerging without the need for a religious, let alone Christian foundation", adding: "What is clear is that a hierarchy of rights is emerging where religious freedom is trumped again and again."
