Sectarianism fails to see the humanity of other people

We can debate sectarianism and why such narrow-mindedness still afflicts societies, but it is axiomatic that hating another person because of their religion is wrong.

Sectarianism fails to see the humanity of other people

The term ‘narrow-mindedness’ is appropriate, because those who espouse sectarianism have such a restricted view of the people they hate.

They see nothing but their religion and nothing in the religion except aspects they loathe.

Dr Kevin McCarthy was correct to speak of the “limited, and limiting, worldview” of anti-Jewish people and why Charlie Murphy (Letters, March 3), or anyone, would take issue with this is puzzling.
