I have met and stayed with many Muslims in my travels over the years and I have to say that they were a really nice, considerate bunch capable of much more logical thinking than Christians. They were always ultra-hospitable to the extent of leaving themselves short.
"Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams raised concerns over the prospect of a Muslim head of religious broadcasting during a meeting with the corporation's director general Mark Thompson in March."
Dr Williams should be thankful that someone sharing my view of religion didn't get the job.
BTW, I'm an atheist, I'll stop there to avoid stiring up trouble!
That's also my experience. Let it not be forgotten that some Briitish people are thought of in less than glowing terms around the world, partly because of our propensity for expecting everyone to change their national way of life to accommodate our likes and dislikes, and our religious foibles.
There are no doubt people in Africa who have been quite surprised when coming here to find that in the main we're not such a bad lot. As someone once said "All people are roughly the same, there's good 'uns and bad 'uns, but all the rest are middlin sort of folk"
