Reader feedback: Religious values are relative

Re: EU forges its constitution, By Lukáš Fila, June 28 - July 4, Vol 10, No 25

If you are going to say that Islam is alien to Europe then you have to say the same about Christianity and Judiasm, which are also imports. There are 15 to 20 million Europeans who are Muslims; a lot more than the number of our own homegrown religions, [like] druidism and pantheism.

As for geography, Turkey doesn't seem to fit very comfortably. Then again, neither do Britain and Ireland.
