LETTER:Not all creeds deserve respect

Click to follow
Sir: Should people's deeply-held beliefs be respected? I am surprised that a Cambridge reader in Church History, Eamon Duffy, should think so (Letters, 6 April). Dr Duffy must surely be aware of those deeply-held beliefs which support genocide, Satanic practices or a death sentence on Salman Rushdie. There are also deeply-held beliefs with less unhappy consequences - such as ones to do with astrology and flat-earthing. Does Dr Duffy respect all these beliefs?
