Letters: Hurtful writing

Madam -- I was personally delighted with our former president's comments on the church's attitude to gay people.

I was encouraged, hopeful and glad to hear from such a respected person, words that might lighten the burden of our many young gay people.

Having, as a retired school principal, witnessed first hand the bullying that most young gay teenagers have to endure in our schools, I said to my heterosexual self, "Well done Mary".
