Ugly mask of the anti-assembly lobby

28th August 1998 at 01:00
MUCH of the hysteria surrounding the daily collective act of worship masks something more ugly. In my experience, many of the opposers are also vehemently opposed to Christianity.

The venom with which they ridicule this historic faith would lead them into very hot water were they to apply it to Islam. Can we stop giving what St Paul called "the God haters" so many column inches?
