Lessons from Islam

Anjem Choudary, a spokesman for Al-Muhajiroun, an extreme Islamicist group, told a press conference that a Muslim flag would fly over Downing Street and that the 9/11 attacks had divided the world into supporters and opponents of Islam. (Source: The Sunday Times – September 12, 2004)

It is easy to dismiss Anjem Choudary as an extremist but many moderate Muslims would like to see Britain a Muslim state – not because they particularly want power, but becasue they are fed up with the corruption, immorality and injustice of British society.

Why isn’t the church fed up with corruption, immorality and injustice too? Or, at least, why is the prophetic voice to our society so seldom heard?
