Having ‘Bottle’ in Religious Debate.

The letters page in The Times seems to have become that which it always does at this festive season.  The letters page always invites more back biting and name calling than most faith based internet forums at Christmas.  However, it was with sorrow that I noticed the lack of bottle that David Fremlin of Colchester shows.  He claims to be an atheist and seems to have decided that he would show how his faith has made him into a more tolerant and well rounded individual fully equipped to live in multi-cultural Britain.  He did this by referring to Christianity as “tosh”.  I would have much greater respect for his boldness if he were to direct other rude and dismissive comments at other world religions over the coming weeks.
