No reason for hostility

Thank you for the item ‘Muslim community welcomes dignitaries’ with its comment on ‘the similarity between Islam and Christianity’ (February 19).

Those who want to explore further might also consider the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd Justin Welby, that “We have huge differences with Islam – as Christians. But that is absolutely no reason for hostility. Quite the reverse” (Guardian 13 July, 2014).
