CHARITY COMMISSION AND THE RECOGNITION OF DRUIDS
EDM #489
Tabled 06 September 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House notes that the Charity Commission has formally recognised druids as a religion and granted them charitable status, even though they have just 300 members; questions why therefore the Charity Commission has not recognised the Christian Brethren church, which has 16,000 members and more than 300 churches across the country; further notes the extensive community and charitable outreach that the Brethren church does, which has significant public benefit; and finally calls on the Charity Commission to stop thediscrimination against this Christian church and to have a level playing field for all religions.
