On the cover you print a picture of the Last Supper, with the headline "The passion for food", and on page 13 you run an article on a sports commentator, headlined "The Jesus of cool". This is gutter journalism. One of the fundamental values of a humane society is an elementary respect for other people's deeply held beliefs. Do the staff of the Independent not understand this, or is it simply that they do not care?
