We're entitled to share views on any religion

I WOULD like to congratulate pastor James McConnell on his courageous stance against political correctness (News, May 21).

He is entitled to his views on Islam and we are entitled to hear them. While believers in all religions should be shown respect, this does not automatically apply to their doctrines.

In the past, rulers have used religion to stifle debate, but now, since the decline of religion, they have turned to political correctness to achieve the same result.
