Welby: Government assumes believers are just ‘a bit bonkers

From The Telegraph-

Government officials know so little about religion that they cannot see the difference between Muslim extremists and traditionalist Anglicans – and so just assume both are “bonkers”, according to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The Most Rev Justin Welby said some staff in departments like the Foreign Office or Ministry of Defence had “no grip” on how people would be motivated by faith and were “desperately trying to catch up” to understand the modern world.

Many, he warned, simply could not see the “relevance” of religious feeling while, at the same time, struggling to make sense of the rise of fundamentalist inspired violence across the world.
