LONDON – Religion is being removed from public life in Britain under the guise of tolerance, the Archbishop of York has warned.
Delivering the inaugural City of Peace lecture to Newcastle City Council Wednesday night, Dr. John Sentamu warned that tolerance was in danger of becoming a “negative virtue” resulting in “narrowness” and “oppression.”
“Tolerance has become a restricting quality – a grudging ‘putting up with’ rather that a positive means of building a caring, peaceful society,” he said. “The problem with this is that it does not give us the means of voicing and dealing constructively with differences."
