The Church of England: 'Government Favors Islam'Topics: Understanding Islam
The Church of England says the British government's "deep religious illiteracy" is failing society as it discriminates against Christian churches and favors other faiths, including Islam - especially Islam, and the policies of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have helped to generate a spiritual, civic and economic crisis in Britain.
[...] Labour is failing society and lacks the vision to restore a sense of British identity, the report says in the Church's strongest attack on the Government for decades. It accuses the Government of "deep religious illiteracy" and of having "no convincing moral direction".Frightening and incredibly dhimmitudious, the British government is hastening it's path into oblivion and rushing in sharia law.
The report, commissioned for the Church of England and to be published on Monday, accuses the Government of discriminating against the Christian Churches in favour of other faiths, including Islam. It calls for the appointment of a "Minister for Religion", who would act as the Prime Minister's personal "faith envoy" and who would recognise the contribution of faith communities to Britain across every government department.
The 180-page report, seen by The Times,describes the Government as moral, but lacking a "compass" and reflects an attempt by the Church to carve out an effective role for itself in the 21st century as a provider of welfare for young and old.
The report was commissioned by the Bishop of Hulme, the Right Rev Stephen Lowe, Bishop for Urban Life and Health, with the support of the archbishops of Canterbury and York, Dr Rowan Williams and Dr John Sentamu.
The report comes only days after Dr Sentamu accused Mr Brown of sacrificing liberty for misguided notions of equality and of betraying new Labour's mantra of "rights and responsibilities". It shows the extent to which church leaders feel betrayed by the Government's embrace of a secular agenda.
So, how's America doing along it's path to ..... marxism, sharia law, or a combination thereof ?
