Letters: Church must confess to fact it failed to live by the Gospel

Nick Folley (Letters, June 19) employs something of an inverted polemic to cushion the inevitable impact of the Tuam 'mother-and-baby' revelations on religious orders and the church authorities of the time.
He ups-the-ante from the off, by claiming that "the story of the babies' cemetery in Tuam has revealed a rather schizophrenic streak within Irish society".
One wonders what supreme sociological, quasi-medicalised qualification of judgement he can proffer to make such a sweeping and damning diagnosis of a whole society.
