FERGAL Leonard is barking up the wrong tree when he describes faith as being "a dangerous concept that humanity would do better to abandon" (Letters, April 7) and blames it for the child abuse in the Catholic Church.

Some people put their faith in financial markets, others in politicians and others in their entrepreneurial abilities. Their actions simply reflect their faith.
