Was Archbishop of Canterbury right to raise Sharia debate?

NO, says Alistair McBay, spokesman for the National Secular Society. YES, says the Rt Rev Sheilagh Kesting, Moderator of the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly:

“I have been deeply concerned at the widespread reaction to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s recent lecture. The personal attacks on him are unacceptable in a civilised society and I have been appalled at the attacks on his integrity and the calls for his resignation. As a fellow faith leader, he is entitled to bring issues like this into public debate and explore the way in which different people and religions can live together. What he has been calling for is discussion and I believe that is only right.”
