You acknowledge that "many unorthodox movements are respectable" and yet still lump religions such as Buddhism and Paganism with evangelical cults such as Mormonism ("Cult explosion threatens to bury Christianity", 8 June) . The former are long-established religions which people choose after finding Christianity doesn't appeal to them. It was not long ago that Hindus in India were converting to Christianity in much the same way.

The true cults are the ones which destroy other faiths by preaching that they lead to Satan. It's time Christians realised it is the arrogance and evangelicalism within their own faith that will "bury Christianity", not the unorthodox ideas of people trying to make their increasingly secular lives a little more spiritual.
