Sir: Why is arguing for a half of the median male wage "theology" (leading article, 19 June)? Are you suggesting that God has a view coincident with that of the unions? How do you know? Have you had a revelation? Or are you convinced by the argument of liberation theology that God is on the side of the poor?

Not at all. You are being rude about an opinion expressed by those with whom you disagree, and you call it "theology". Why "theology"? Why not call an idea from which you dissent and which you suspect of being dressed up in statistical mumbo-jumbo "journalism"?
