Government ‘discriminates against Christianity in favour of Islam’

Christianity is being discriminated against by the Government in favour of Islam and other minority faiths, according to a landmark Church of England report.

The highly critical report, titled Moral, But No Compass – a twist on Mr Brown’s claim to have a “moral compass” – carries significant weight as it has been endorsed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and expresses the views of three-quarters of the Church’s bishops.

It echoes claims made by the Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, last week that the decline of Christian values is destroying Britishness and has created a “moral vacuum” which radical Islam is filling.
