Concerns over the erosion of Protestantism

THE Evangelical Protestant Society, as an evangelical umbrella organisation, which seeks to defend and promote evangelical Protestantism in our changing society, has been concerned about the gradual, but steady erosion of Ulster's Protestant foundations.

We have, therefore, written to all Protestant and unionist elected representatives at Stormont and Westminster to urge them to take a firm stand in two specific areas.

First, there is an alarming decline in respect for the sanctity of the Lord's Day, with more and more social and sporting events being held on a Sunday.

The other area of concern relates to the seemingly increasing willingness on the part of some Protestant politicians to attend requiem mass.
