Courts and the changing Church-state relationship

Western governments are slowly making legal changes that will take away the religious freedom of the Church. The recent U.S. and Belgian movements were preceded by the earlier British court decisions. The outcome will be to expand state powers over matters of religious doctrine and give secular courts the authority to rule over theological questions. This may take some time to achieve, but this is the direction Western courts are moving.
