I rather like what the Queen said at the West Runton WI in Norfolk yesterday, about people respecting others' point of view and making an effort to explore the common ground.
She was probably covertly referring to the Brexit debates, but it's a good way to approach other people's religious tenets too.
I'm curious and interested in all religions and beliefs, despite being broadly Christian. What I detest, I'm afraid, is rampant fundamentalism.
I've moaned on here before about this ghastly fundamentalist Muslim couple who zoom up to me in Tesco if they spot us, and exhort me to accept Allah, and say I'm not truly my husband's wife as we weren't married in a mosque blah blah blah.
I stay calm, smile weakly and change the subject, then whizz off to the crumpet aisle. But it does make my blood boil.
