A secular state is good for all

THERE is much to admire in the total lack of irony that David Quinn (Irish Independent, June 25) brings to his attack on the Green Party.
To accuse them of being more concerned about the rights of homosexuals and animals than the sensibilities of the Catholic Church would make any self-respecting satirist drool.
Regardless, Mr Quinn is surely aware that Ireland tried being a Catholic state. It turned out that the only people to flourish were those powerful enough not to be concerned by Catholic superstition and priests.
