Ruth Gledhill writing in her blog for the Times mentions the letter sent out by Dr Alan Clifford of Norwich Reformed Church about Islam. She fears that protests by extremist Muslims against soldiers returning from Iraq may legitimise his perspective. She says the letter is full of ‘extreme negative comment about Islam’. I must admit that I too get rather annoyed when all Muslims are tarred with the same brush and I am not convinced that Allah is any more a false god than the God of the Samaritan woman in John 4 or the God of liberal Christianity, but even if I disagree with them in a number of respects I wouldn’t label Dr Clifford’s views as extreme or illegitimate (which means unlawful). What do you think?
