O'Doherty's religious comments offensive

I don't believe that I am the only person who was deeply offended and hurt by Ian O'Doherty's piece titled "Church -- it's bad for your health" which was published on March 28.
His ignorant and insulting comments on the Blessed Host in particular were, I believe, written to be as nasty as possible. He is sadly mistaken if he thinks they were funny.
Insulting other people's deeply held religious beliefs is very lazy journalism and betrays a prejudiced mind. Those comments may help establish his liberal, trendy credentials but at the cost of hurting many decent people.
