You really could not make this up but bizarrely the Church of England with their history from the Crusades onwards have submitted a claim for £5m of taxpayers money to wait for it combat radicalisation and promote community cohesion.
Frankly speaking what a joke that the men in cloth believe if Muslims sit down on a Sunday and watch Songs of Praise we might grow up to be upstanding members of the community. This project seems more about a backdoor missionary approach rather than getting neighbours to relate more positively towards each other.
My advice to the Church is if you really are keen to adopt "befriending" schemes how about abolishing your divisive and intolerant CoE faith schools or allowing all kids from different faiths to attend.
