Aaqil Ahmed: The Church of England is ‘living in the past’
The Corporation's new Head of Religion (and Ethics), Aaqil Ahmed, has accused the Established Church of 'living in the past'.
Cranmer has nothing to say, except to observe that if the BBC's Head of Religion (and Ethics) believes the Church of England - which is fully engaged with and bearing the costs of the debates surrounding gender equality and sexual orientation - is 'living in the past', he must be persuaded that the Roman Catholic Church is at the very least antediluvian.
And if the Roman Catholic Church is antediluvian, he must be of the opinion that Islam is positively Jurassic.
Why does he not say this?
