Praise be for people believing whatever they choose

REGARDING ‘Are miracles too much to believe?’ and ‘Church praises the Lord for new home’ (Gazette, April 16) surely no connection there then! Anyway, I believe the world and its mother-in-law have every right to believe in anything they want to believe in, whether it’s miracles, God, fairies or Santa Claus, but wrong to impose their beliefs on others.

Now to the church from Africa praising the Lord after finding a new home in Derby Terrace to spread the word of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

Well, it seems to me we’ve gone full circle, as it’s not so long ago British Missionaries sailed out to Africa to teach religion in the first place.

Their own form of worship involves the local pastor engaging his congregation in high-spirited singing and shouts of praise, in so doing working them all into an emotional state.

Well, if it floats their boat, fine, but it certainly wouldn’t float mine.
