Sir: The Rev Peter Mullen (Religious Notes, 16 February) says the overwhelming argument for establishment of the Church of England is that "all inhabit the same plot ... this realm ... this common language and shared history ... the need to remain religious in the English mode". That is in fact a definition of a localised sect, not a great world religion. It is nationalism, parochialism and cultural domination - called "comprehensiveness".
