Dedicating a week to inter faiths is pretty puerile really, I do not see much evidence of the Finchley Mosque mob participating or the Coventry Gurdwara clique. Much, much more work is required before these elements can be brought into the equation and brought in they need to be.

Perhaps I am being a shade hard on Eric Pickles and others of his considerable ilk. But I do find an Inter Faith week that focuses on those with 'religious and non-religious beliefs' a chutney of a different nature. What have non-religious folk got to do with Faith Week? They ain't got none and, I guess they don't want none either. And, if they do want some then a series of meaningless coffee mornings or Sitar demos down the Labour Club is not going to give them much of a clue as to the love of Christ for Man.
Whoops, sorry, shouldn't have mentioned Christ just then; I forgot that Inter Faith really means no faith whatsoever!
