A new way to support churches

Sir - It's no time since the Vatican's representative here wouldn't go before a parliamentary committee to account for Rome's actions in respect of the abuse of Irish children at the hands of their priests here.
The Vatican claimed to be a State and thus made its unseemly escape, insulting our parliamentarians in the process.
Now in the midst of a referendum of the people concerning civil law, its bishops, not one of whom were selected or approved by Irish people, are intruding into our secular affairs.
