Letters to the Editor

Sir - I don't understand the hype and big deal being made over Stephen Fry's answer to Gay Byrne's question.

He said that if and when he arrived at heaven's gate, he'd ask God why God allowed innocent children to get bone cancer and such.

I'm a practising, committed Catholic/Christian. And my faith/religion means a lot to me. But I frequently ask God why God allows so much suffering, pain, distress, debilitating illnesses, injustice, evilness and cruelty to exist in what is God's world and ours.
