Should readings from the Koran feature in the next Coronation?

The former Bishop of Oxford, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, has said readings from the Koran should feature in the next Coronation, when Prince Charles succeeds to the Throne. 

In a debate on the role of religion in British public life, Lord Harries, now an independent peer, praised what he called "the hospitality" shown in a service last year at Bristol Cathedral. 

However, Douglas Murray, author and associate editor of The Spectator, disagreed saying: "A lot of people will think this is an example of Anglican leaders not having faith in their own faith."

I don't know why Americans who knows that America nuked Japan TWICE should have so many fits of the vapours over a few beheadings.

Neo-Conservatism is all about military aggression.
