Papal letter was just papal bull
Outraged -- that's the only way to describe how I feel about the Pope's decision. It is quite obvious now that there will be no change from within the Catholic Church itself. The contempt that the Vatican shows for the people of this country is beyond comprehension. His papal letter to Ireland was nothing more than papal bull.
It is the people of this island who will have to instigate change.
We can start by reducing religion to what it should be, a choice and nothing more than that, it should not be the law. The special place Fianna Fail (The Papal Party) afforded the church in Ireland should be abolished, and all references to religion in our Constitution should also be abolished.
