GARETH O'Callaghan has started a holy war with Ray D'Arcy because the Today FM host has revealed he doesn't believe in God.
The ex-2 FM star said D'Arcy should keep his personal beliefs to himself when broadcasting.
D'Arcy recently told listeners that he belonged to a section of society in Ireland that had no religion.
O'Callaghan said: "Maybe it's not trendy today to believe in a God in some shape or form. He said recently on his radio show that he didn't believe in God.
"That's fine by me but he should keep his beliefs - or 'non- beliefs' - to himself, particularly when he's dancing barefoot on a subject that still forms the cultural tapestry of who we are."
O'Callaghan said much of D'Arcy's audience was made up of impressionable young people.
He fumed: "For a broadcaster to come out with such a loose- cannon statement is nothing less than a blatant abuse of his privileges, demonstrating a level of immaturity and recklessness that makes alarm bells ring.
"Ray D'Arcy is no Gay Byrne nor will he ever be."

The cultural tapestry of who we are? How much of that tapestry is made of two faced hypocricy, child abuse, and lies.
Whereabouts on the tapestry would Industrial Schools, Magdelene, Laundries, Sadistic Christian Brothers, Padeopile Priests, Two faced lying Cardinals, Papal cover ups, Church sponsored Nazi war criminalls, political collusion, Crawthumpers, Deluded Zealots and Tax fraud happen to be located?
I'd like to know so I can dance them into oblivion!

Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.
