OPINION: As a born-again Christian of many years, I thought I was immune to the jeering and sneering of godless Kiwis. However, Tom Scott's cartoon (Opinion, Nov 9) managed to slip past the goalie.

In my grandparents' day, this land was known as ''God's own country'' but we've fallen a long way from that. It was interesting listening to comments of visitors from around the world for the Rugby World Cup.

One Canadian remarked that: ''Auckland is the loosest city in the world. As long as you don't burn anything down or kill anyone, the rest is legal.''

I wonder what he thought as he sat in Eden Park and listened to the crowd singing God of Nations at thy feet.

When you next see Scott, tell him that, had he directed his pathetic sarcasm to Mohammed and the Koran, he and his family would be hunted down and killed.

If you don't believe me, check it out with Salman Rushdie . . . if you can find him.
