Bradfords acting bishop has spoken out against the disgraceful behaviour of a far-right group at mosques in the district and at the Keighley home of the Lord Mayor.
Britain First members entered the places of worship on March 10, handing out Bibles and urging worshippers to renounce Islam, as well as visiting the home of the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain.
Bishop Tom Butler, Acting Bishop of Bradford, has condemned the groups actions.
He made the comments at a special civic service at Bradford Cathedral, attended by Coun Hussain.
In his address, Bishop Butler said: Mr Lord Mayor, I say that none of you expect thanks, but neither do you expect the appalling treatment which you experienced when a delegation arrived at your home demanding to meet you.
I can well understand your daughters felt intimidated, and I hope there is no repeat of such disgraceful behaviour in a city that has worked so hard to develop good relationships between the communities and the faiths.

An armed militia? Swastika-wearing neo Nazis? Jack-booted skin heads carrying baseball bats?
No, just a group handing out Bibles.
The district druid has spoken.
Good to hear from the leader of the surrender-sect.
