Letter from Bishop of Leicester The Rt Revd Tim Stevens
Recent publicity about the group “Britain First” and the disgraceful events in the mosques in Bradford, have led me to drop you a line. I would want you to know that they certainly do not represent the Christian community in this country, and that we do not recognise their brand of “Christianity”.
Sadly, in all our communities, there are those who misinterpret their faith and take somewhat extreme positions. I very much hope that these events will not create any significant tensions between our communities and that we will not see them replicated here in Leicester.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further concerns about this group and it’s activities locally. With warm good wishes as ever,
The Rt Revd Tim Stevens”
