LONDON, May 28 (UPI) -- A leading authority in the Church of England said the declining influence of Christianity in England opened the door for the emergence of radical Islam.

Bishop of Rochester Michael Nazir-Ali said in the political magazine Standpoint the lack of Christian ideals in England created a "moral and spiritual vacuum" that radical Islam seeks to fill, The Telegraph said.

He claims political and church leaders aren't embracing traditional Christian values.

"We are now confronted by another equally serious ideology, that of radical Islamism, which also claims to be comprehensive in scope," Nazir-Ali writes.
