The Bishop of Oxford Wimps Out

Up to now, I’ve been very well disposed toward the Bishop of Oxford, John Pritchard. So I’m disappointed to find out that the proposed loud speaker broadcasts of Muslim calls to prayer in Oxford are just hunky-dory with him.

The numerous comments on the above story are interesting by the way. This is a rather heated issue in Oxford.

I think the main objection is not the fact that it's an Islamic call to prayer but that it's going to be very loud. Those living near the mosque (our Vice-Principal among them) will find it incredibly loud. However, it will only be rung on Friday and, primarily, when he's not at home.
