Do read this

In Today's Times there is an interesting article on John Locke by William Rees Mogg. Click and read.

When he gets past his irritating boasting about his first edition of the Letter on Toleration, he makes some interesting points about why Locke, the great exponent of toleration, did not believe in toleration for Catholics, Muslims or atheists. This is all the more interesting in the light of Rees Mogg's Catholic faith!
