Murtadd Nazir-Ali on defending all faiths
The BBC reports that the bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, has some opinions on the Prince of Wales’ plan to be “Defender of Faith” when (or if) he takes the throne:
The Prince of Wales cannot defend all faiths because the differences between them makes such a position untenable, a senior Anglican bishop has said.
The Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, said all faiths could not be defended because of serious differences between various religions.
He said Prince Charles would be obliged to take an oath to defend the Christian church if he succeeded to the throne.
Dr Nazir-Ali has also warned against “multi-faith mish-mash” in the UK.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the monarchy and the legal system had both emerged from the Judeo-Christian ethic.
Not that Nazir-Ali is biased or anything.
