Opinions as facts

Have your say

Steuart Campbell regularly presents himself in your columns as an expert on almost any subject, but his latest vindictive attack on the Christian faith (Letters, 29 July) presents opinions – mainly his own – as facts.

I’m surprised his assertions go unchallenged by the Kirk’s vastly more experienced minds than his or mine, when our leading church figures are often ready to speak out on other matters.

Christian believers of any denomination don’t claim infallibility, but they do have faith, sometimes vindicated through the most unimaginable experiences.

Mr Campbell’s claim that, as an atheist he is “modest”, is hardly borne out by the bitter words he selects to condemn people’s Christian belief. Does he extend the same ridicule to other faiths?
