(The Christian Institute) Evangelical Christians have been labelled extremist, and likened to “totalitarian Muslims” by a senior government advisor.

Alan Judd, an advisor to the Secretary of State for Education, was commenting on recent free school applications by Evangelical Christians.

Mr Judd’s comments were strongly refuted by the Evangelical Alliance, which said the comments demonstrate a “woeful lack of religious understanding at the heart of government”.
