(Sunday Telegraph) Study says Muslim Council has ‘more of a voice’ than the Archbishop of Canterbury

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The decline of the Anglican Church as the country’s main religious voice is confirmed by findings from the Henry Jackson Society.
The study, which monitored statements by religious groups and media coverage of religion over the past decade, also found that the Roman Catholic Church had a more prominent role in public debate about religious issues than the Church of England.
Catholics focused heavily on pro-life issues and personal morality. Statements made by the C of E, in contrast, were more likely to be about overseas aid, foreign policy and poverty.

It will be interesting to see the actual study.  From a sheer number standpoint, the way it is reported, one would give the MCGB more statements.  However, it would be interesting to compare sheer loquacity and obsfuscatoriness.  No doubt the loquacious and incomprehensibility honours would go to Rowan!
