David Quinn was right to highlight the fact that Irish politicians are "disastrously and shamefully" all too happy to impose a new absolutism of equality espoused in the UK by left-wing pressure groups ('Religious freedoms under attack from equality laws', Irish Independent, February 5).
He highlighted the case of Britain's National Secular Society which told the Pope to "butt out of politics; that religious belief could not be above the law".
This kind of response is similar to what the Nazi criminals tried to plead during the Nuremberg Trials.
