Letter: Bitter Dawkins

Sir: In spite of an initial impression to the contrary, Richard Dawkins's offensively bitter comments ("Surely, you must be joking", 24 December) show just how deeply he cares about the truths of Christian belief: you don't get offensive or bitter about something you couldn't give tuppence for.

Since he does obviously care so much, may I suggest that he extends the scope of his religious knowledge to include theologies of the Incarnation and the Atonement other than the fundamentalist and reductionist interpretations that he attacks? They do exist.
