Sir, – I do not believe that atheism has a face. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Dermot A Quirk (November 6th) concurs with Jefferson, who said, “It does me no injury if my neighbour believes in 20 gods or none at all”. I too concur. However, if my neighbours not only tell me what’s right and wrong, but tell me what I should do and how I should live my life according to their gods and teach my children in school that that their religion is the truth, my concurrence wavers. – Yours, etc,
