'Christian nation' opposed
Catholic News Service

The Zambian bishops are opposed to a proposal to identify Zambia as “a Christian nation” in the preamble to a new national constitution.

“A country cannot practice the values and precepts of Christianity by a mere declaration,” they said.

Zambia is a multi-religious country whose laws support abortion in specific cases; the death penalty is also legal.
