Koran should be read at Prince Charles' coronation says top bishop: Critics attack proposal and accuse Church of England of 'losing confidence' in its own traditions
by Steve Doughty
Prince Charles's coronation service should be opened with a reading from the Koran, a senior Church of England bishop said yesterday.
The gesture would be a 'creative act of accommodation' to make Muslims feel 'embraced' by the nation, Lord Harries of Pentregarth said.
But critics attacked the idea, accusing the Church of 'losing confidence' in its own institutions and traditions.
