Bishops Urge West Midlanders to Vote Wisely

Published: 17th May 2009 21:05
Eleven Anglican bishops from across the West Midlands have encouraged their church members to vote in the forthcoming European Elections on 4th June, and to make sure they do not support any party which promotes prejudices based on country of origin, race or religion

The bishops represent the five dioceses of Birmingham, Coventry, Lichfield, Hereford and Worcester. Between them the dioceses include 1,726 churches.

In a joint statement issued to Anglican churches across the region, the bishops state: "We wish to express in the strongest terms our distaste for any political platform which has the effect of destabilising communities through the use of misinformation, scare stories and inflammatory rhetoric."

The bishops are keen that apathy does not prevent people from using their vote and want to remind voters that decisions made in Europe are of vital importance.
