The response to my email...
I totally agree that as Christians we should do as Christ would and welcome all and I hope that I do. I also pray for all those of other faiths including those who are persecuting Christians and burning down their churches. I agree that love is the only response even to the Islamists but are you aware that our government has already made concessions to them to appease them? I am not advocating either approach, I just think it's good to be aware.
I don't think this is about people losing ther homes - I didn't read it like that anyway - I think it's got more to do with respecting one another and caring too for the place we've been able to choose to live. There are many Muslims and other faiths who live here who do just that, I'm not racist Alexandra I thought you knew me better than that, and where I grew up I mixed with people of other faiths and races but if I went to live in another country I would accept that I would have to abide by their laws. It's because Britain and Australia have respect for freedom of choice that we are now facing a group of very zealous people who want to take over with a very different set of rules. I am not advocating violence or hatred and I very much hope and pray that the public doesn't react in that way and I also hope and pray that those who are taught that there only chance of salvation is to blow themselves up and take innocent people with them will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. I am aware of Ghandi's quote and others like it and I have also done some study into the story of the Samaritan woman.
I am truly sorry if I have offended you, I had no intention of doing that, I hope you will forgive me. When you are not studying you may like to read a book called 'Secret Believers' by Brother Andrew and Al Jansenn if you haven't already, it is based on true stories but is written more as a novel to protect the identities of the characters.
