My thoughts exactly!

Follow-up to This Christmas stamp issue from Musings of a blonde

From the letter Justin mentioned:

'These are days when people of all faiths need to come together and identify what we have in common, as well as respecting our differences. We must learn to live together in peace'.

Hear, hear!

Too much time is spent haggling over people's differences nowadays, and we are too sensitive to things that are even only slightly controversial. However, trying to merge all the world's peoples in to one by integrating them completely is not going to work either. People of different cultures and religions are proud of their identity (in the most part!) and thus shouldn't be forced to dumb down any part of it. Individuality is important, and there's no reason for people to fail to get on just because they come from a different background as long as they just accept that there are going to be occasional differences of opinion. Crikey, there's enough division in the Anglican church at the moment and they're all supposed to believe in the same things!
