Backing the Bishop
What the opponants of reasoned and proportionate attention and discussion of issues relating the Islam and the modern world all have in common is an oppressive commitment to political correctness. Thousands of e-mails of complaint to the Sun and the BBC by people who I strongly presume have barely listened the Archbishops actual comments in either his Radio 4 interview or his address previously, don't serve as a barometer of public opinion, and therefore shouldn't be used as justification for journalistic hysteria. Why does a tepid and reasonable discussion about religion and civil law evoke outcry in our mainstream 24hour media!
