July 23 2013 By virtueonline Archbishop of Canterbury condemns 'unacceptable' attacks on Muslims

He added: "I want, as I have already done, to acknowledge the pressure that our Muslim friends and colleagues have faced over the last few weeks.

July 21 2013 By virtueonline What was achieved in opposing the redefinition of marriage?
