A number of Christian bishops said they feel comeradry with other non-christian faiths to fight the onslaught by atheists on faith groups. One of the bishops voiced his concerns that it is not the freedom of church but the freedom of individuals to keep their faith and not be discriminated at work place. He further explained that my right to preach can never be taken away but the right of people declaring their faith and their opinion in work place is in danger. He fears that many people fear that they will loose their job if they express their religious views.
