We must honour our religion
AS a Catholic I must comment on the outpouring of criticisms of my church in recent days.
The physical and sexual abuse of children by so many religious has once again dominated the headlines. It seems that the children who were abused are being used as "stepping stones" by some in our society who wish to damage the church.
The priests, bishops and the rest of the hierarchy are respected and honoured by us Catholics, not for who they are but for what they represent. They are the figureheads of our church.
