Express and Echo 1 December2007
I find the jailing of the English teacher Gillian Gibbons by a Sudanese court totally unacceptable, Echo, November 30. She has been found guilty of insulting the Islamic religion for calling a teddy bear Mohammed.
I support the Islamic Human Rights Council in this country in calling for her release and I hope the faith leaders in Exeter will also condemn the sentence.

The belief that belief in God is so important that it must not be subjected to the risks of discomfiture or serious criticism has led the devout to "save" their beliefs by making them incomprehensible even to themselves.
