On Tuesday I posted a link to a piece I wrote for the Guardian “Comment is Free” online section.
I received a number of responses, and I would just like to respond to a few things:
I have no problem with what people believe as long as they do not harm others. We should all respect each other, women and men, old and young, gay and straight, those with disabilities and the able bodied, black and white. We are, after all, human beings living on the same planet.
I believe democracy, and therefore other people, are harmed when MPs allow their religious faith rather than the principles of the party they represent to influence their votes in Parliament.
