LETTER

Re: In Bible too, May 9 letter.

Two points, Lara. While the Old Testament is far more bloodthirsty than the Koran, nobody takes it seriously apart from a few nut jobs such as Israel Folau, who rightly is subjected to public ridicule in the crucible of the limited free speech we have.

And yes, on politically neutral issues Wikipedia is generally reliable, but on certain topics it is guilty of little short of fabrication, and is clearly not independent but acts in the interests of powerful groups.
