Queen's chaplain condemns Koran reading in cathedral
by David Sanderson
The Queen's chaplain has criticised a church that allowed a Koran reading during a service, saying that it should apologise to Christians "suffering dreadful persecution at the hands of Muslims".
The Rev Gavin Ashenden said that the fallout from the decison provided a lesson in the limitations of interfaith dialogue.
Dr Ashenden was responding to the decision by a Glasgow cathedral to allow the reading of a passage from the Koran that teaches that Jesus is not the son of God during a service to mark the feast of the Epiphany on January 6.
