Letter: No faith in Stalin

Sir: I wonder why it is that when people like Mark Steel (Comment, 21 December) decide to attack the Christian faith they always illustrate their arguments by describing the least Christ-like people they know. If I were proposing to attack atheism I would not take Joseph Stalin as my model. Perhaps they are implicitly acknowledging that Jesus was right after all.
