• Cardinal Sean Brady has abused the allowance given to the church by the State to deliver its message.
Cardinal Brady is a dangerous fundamentalist completely at odds with modern society and its complexities. How dare he abuse the Christmas message to further a political agenda in lobbying for the anti-choice brigade. How incredibly selfish and self-serving for a primate who has no understanding of the incredible suffering felt by women when having a bad miscarriage.
The sooner individuals like Cardinal Sean Brady are ignored the better and the safer women will be.

• Cardinal Sean Brady and his fellow bishops have a duty to state clearly the position of the Irish Catholic Church on abortion, but they are not entitled to act as the surrogate conscience of democratically elected legislators.
