Re: Interview Sunday Tribune

Well done Martijn. I did a similar thing years ago by taking my kids out of religious instruction at primary school.

Re: Mary Raftery

It was after watch her documentary a few years ago on clerical sex abuse that I took my then young children out of religion classes. That's how much of an influence she had on me. She is great!

Re: ET Schools does not equal Secular schools

I can't believe any ET school would do this. Is this the start of things to come?

Religion ought to be left at the front door of any school.

Maddening!

Re: Radio interview on RTE Tuesday Aug 24

Good interview. I thought Brenda Donahue gave a fair and balanced interview to both of you.

I remember my mother saying to us years ago when the bells rang out on TV at six to, "bless yourself you pagans!" We were only small kids. Nowadays, I turn over till the bells are finished.

Or the cross on the back of a donkey.

I'm delighted the call for the removal of The Angelus is being well highlighted. Good work!
