The Anglican bishop, Peter Forster, who is attending a Vatican synod as an outside observer, made his comments immediately after the Pope had concluded prayers for peace in the Vatican, in which the Pope commemorated the terrorist attacks on the Unit

Bishop Foster said that "However justified it might be, we ask the same question, where will it lead - will it put an end to terrorism, or just encourage more of it?" "God is present in New York and Washington, but also in Afghanistan. He's with a wealthy and sophisticated Western society which has lost touch with reality in all sorts of ways. "He's also with those who suffer from lack of resources and poverty, and he's also somehow present to the terrorists whose hearts have turned to evil in great poverty of spirit," he concluded. The Pope, while condemning terrorism, has stood slightly on the political sidelines since the American bombing began, neither condemning nor approving the Anglo-American military action. On 11 September he called the attacks, blamed on Osama Bin Laden, a "dark day for humanity", and said religion could never justify conflict. But there is a debate going on at the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church about what are the conditions for a just war at the start of the third Christian Millennium.
