“We Must Recover our Christian Nerve Before our Judeo-Christian Heritage is Lost”
Those are the words that Rochester Bishop, Nazir-Ali, has told to the Anglican Conservative Leaders in a speech.
He spoke for 45 minutes without a script, mirroring the style of the Archbishop of Canterbury who often relies on a lone Post-It when delivering lengthy speeches, and touched on a number of issues, such as converting Muslims, which pleased the Anglicans from Nigeria, a country that has experienced violent conflicts between the two religions.
It’s interesting to consider that the Nigerian Anglicans were pleased with his speech, specially because Nigeria is a Muslim country.

In November 2006 Nazir-Ali criticised the “dual psychology” of some Muslims who seek both “victimhood and domination”. He said it would never be possible to satisfy all of the demands made by Muslims because “their complaint often boils down to the position that it is always right to intervene when Muslims are victims… and always wrong when Muslims are the oppressors or terrorists”.
(…)In January 2008 Nazir-Ali wrote that Islamic extremism had turned “already separate communities into ‘no-go’ areas” and claimed that there had been attempts to “impose an ‘Islamic’ character on certain areas”, citing the amplification of the call to prayer from mosques as an example. He criticised the government’s integration policy as “an agenda which still lacks the underpinning of a moral and spiritual vision”, and asked that the government make a public affirmation of the “Christian roots of British society”.
