Arrows of a secular and godless culture

Attacked from the outside by the arrows of a secular and godless culture, rocked from the inside by the sins and crimes of priests and consecrated people, we all feel the temptation to lose confidence.”

You can nearly hear Mr. Boyce spit these words out with disgust. As if being secular and godless is the lowest of the low.

Why is it that with such foul language being hurled at Atheists we are both reluctant to give the same back, and criticized for attacking the church when we face shameless bigotry from them?

It's days like these where Atheist Ireland should be on the streets.

We don't wish to drop to their level, I suppose.

But drop we must. We must raise the consciousness of "masses"!
