O'Toole's rebuke of church is insulting

Senator Joe O'Toole has demanded that Foreign Affairs Minister Micheal Martin send a cable of protest to Catholic Primate Cardinal Sean Brady, Archbishop of Armagh.
The cardinal had issued a mild press statement in response to the European Court of Human Rights ruling on abortion in which he said the judgment raised "profound moral and legal issues which will require careful analysis and reflection".
The church should stick to "the praying" was the senator's response to this statement.
