Anti-Christian bias of our aid handouts in refugee camps, by former Archbishop Lord Carey

by John Stevens, Mailonline:

A former Archbishop of Canterbury last night launched a stinging attack on ‘politically correct’ aid officials who are ‘institutionally biased’ against helping Christians.

Lord Carey warned ministers risk breaking the law by discriminating against Christians facing oppression in Syria.

He claimed Syrian Christians are not benefiting from British help as they avoid UN refugee camps, funded with UK aid, because of fears of persecution from rogue Islamist groups operating inside or Muslim officials who are hostile to converts to Christianity.

By staying away from the camps, Christians are missing out on food, shelter and opportunities to come to Britain in a relocation scheme.

Lord Carey, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 to 2002, said: ‘In the run-up to Easter, British taxpayers will be appalled by this institutional bias against Christians by politically correct officials.

‘In this the British Government is not just breaking its manifesto pledge to look after Christian refugees it also appears to be breaking the law. The conflicts in the Middle East have resulted in suffering and persecution of Christians. They have been killed or chased out of the birthplace of their faith.

‘The British Government has repeatedly promised to help persecuted Christians but has done nothing. Instead Muslim officials have been put in charge of the billions of British taxpayer aid in the UNHCR camps. This is ensuring that help and aid rarely reaches the Christians.’
