Diversity – not division

WHAT a sad, mean spirited view of Christianity is put forward by your correspondent Catherine Joughin (letters, July 1).

Years ago I noted down a quote (I can’t remember from where): “God gives us diversity – division is what we make of it”.

Diversity is surely one of the glories of the human spirit and should be celebrated, not condemned.

We should remember that both racism and anti-Semitism were acceptable until relatively recently and I believe homophobia should join these abhorrent attitudes in the historical dustbin.
