Calvin Robinson in The Telegraph argues that the Church of England’s ‘From Lament to Action’ Report provides little more than dogma and unsubstantiated assertions of ‘institutional racism:
The Church of England may not be the most diverse body in the world, but “From Lament to Action” itself details how ethnic minority people make up 15 per cent of those who worship in the Church, which, if anything, is slightly more than the non-white proportion of the total population.
Moreover, the Bible itself proclaims that “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28). That surely is the message that the Anti-Racism Task Force ought to be promoting.
