Anglican leader warns of fear against terror, within church

"Fear not," said a Church of England bishop in the days after several bomb plots were discovered and amid the second anniversary of the 2005 suicide bombings.

Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu, warned Monday that fear of terrorism can lead to "false conclusions about our Muslim neighbors."


"At the moment, the Church is in danger of being paralyzed by fear of schism in the Anglican Communion; by much painful disagreement over the controverted issue of ordaining people in same-sex relationships, and the blessing of such relationships," Sentamu said in his address.

And when fear grips the Church, Sentamu warned that "Christ can easily be pushed out of the way as we try to show others that we are right and that they are wrong."

"Then, grace, compassion and love go out of the window."
