Speak for yourself

Madam – It was with dismay that I read of Martin Long's, of the Catholic Communication Office, formal complaint against comedian Mario Rosenstock's alleged slur on the Eucharist to the Director General of RTE.

It seems that Mr Long's central complaint was that Mr Rosenstock offended the sensibilities of every Catholic in Ireland. As a Catholic, please do not presume to speak for me Mr Long,.

It seems that ever since the Father Reynolds victory for libel against RTE, clerics have become emboldened. In the not too distant past they were disinclined to wear their religious garb in public.
