Via the Daily Mail:
Church leaders have hit out at a branch of McDonald's which is to open on Christmas Day.
A Muslim branch manager has been drafted in by the fast food outlet to cover for the usual boss who is taking the day off and staff have volunteered to work that day for seven hours.
Parish Rvd Wayne Stillwell said the decision to open the branch showed 'the continuing decline of Christendom in this country' and his reaction was 'one of great sadness'.
Shahban Rehmat who has volunteered to manage the outlet said he expected a steady trade throughout the day. He said no staff who did not want to work that day were being forced to.
'I think the move will prove popular with non-Christians, and several customers have asked us whether we will be open.
'It’s difficult to say how many we are expecting but I think there will be a steady trade.'
