more from Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali

Updated Thursday afternoon

Martin Beckford has written further in the Telegraph about his interview with the (now former) Bishop of Rochester.

The earlier report was linked here.

At Cif belief Andrew Brown has commented about this, see The Anglican right at the crossroads.

As Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali retires, are conservative Anglicans beginning to see Islam as the main threat to their values?

Yes, he bears all the signs of incipient Dunconianism.
