Church of England accuses Government of favoring Muslims
Anglican Parishes in England are being starved of state funds to help the poor as a result of money being diverted to other faiths, senior clergy have told the General Synod, which is meeting in York.
According to a story by Jonathan Wynne-Jones, Religious Affairs Correspondent for Britainâ€™s Daily Telegraph (www.telegraph.co.uk), â€œA report endorsed by Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, claimed that the Government had become â€˜unbalancedâ€™ in its approach to faith groups.

The seminar will be held 16-18 May and be chaired by Dr Williams. Co-hosting the event will be Rais al-Ulama Dr Mustafa Ceri, Metropolitan Nikolaj, and Cardinal Vinko Puljic. Scholars worldwide from both Christian and Muslim faiths will hold detailed discussions over the period of three days." (Christian Today)
