Islam in not a religion in the traditional sense.
Gee, would the dear bishop say the same thing about anti-totalitarians coming into buildings of pro-Nazi and pro-Communist supporters, encouraging them to come to the side of liberty and freedom. I think he would.
Bishop condemns ‘disgraceful’ behaviour of Britain First group in Bradford mosques
6:00am Friday 23rd May 2014 in News
Bradford’s acting bishop has spoken out against the “disgraceful behaviour” of a far-right group at mosques in the district.
Britain First members entered the places of worship on March 10, handing out Bibles and urging worshippers to renounce Islam, as well as visiting the Keighley home of the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain.
Bishop Tom Butler, Acting Bishop of Bradford, has now condemned the group’s actions.
He made the comments at a special civic service at Bradford Cathedral, attended by Coun Hussain.
In his address on Saturday, Bishop Butler said: “Mr Lord Mayor, I say that none of you expect thanks, but neither do you expect the appalling treatment which you experienced last week when a delegation arrived at your home demanding to meet with you.
“I can well understand that your daughters felt intimidated, and I hope that there is no repeat of such disgraceful behaviour in a city which has worked so hard to develop good relationships between the communities and the faiths.”
