Christian doctrine is offensive to Muslims, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday.

Dr Rowan Williams also criticised Christianity's history for its violence, its use of harsh punishments and its betrayal of its peaceful principles.

Makes you wonder why he is part of the church let alone an Archbishop. Nowhere in his letter does he mention that the Islamic notion that Jesus was an Islamic prophet who was not divine is offensive to Christians. Or that the Islamic decrees that Christians be either converted or subjugated is even more offensive. Given that he seems to know very little of what he's talking about, though, this comes as no surprise.
