No answers from RTE on Angelus

Let me share my experience with Pierce Martin ('Take the Angelus off our screens', Letters, February 9) of trying to get RTE to remove the Angelus.

When I asked why was it still shown, I was told it was because a lot of people of many faiths use it as a time for contemplation. I was also told that many religious leaders from many different faiths said they enjoyed it and believed it should continue.

I then asked RTE to supply me with the contact details of these religious leaders. My answer? I never received one.
