Church of England accused of censoring debate on Islam
by Martin Beckford
The Church of England has been accused of censorship for shelving a controversial debate about Islam.
A meeting of the Church's "parliament" was due to discuss whether clergy should be doing more to convert British Muslims to Christianity.
The sensitive issue was highlighted last week by a senior bishop who accused Church leaders of failing to reach out to other faiths, and warned that radical Islam is filling a gap in society caused by the decline of traditional Christian values.
But now the Church has put off the debate on recruiting Muslims until next February at the earliest and will discuss the promotion of churches as tourist attractions instead.
