Martina Devlin: What will FG tax or cut to reopen Vatican embassy?
How odd that, for some, the Rubicon was crossed by shutting our embassy to the Vatican rather than because of any other closure and cut imposed by this Government.
How odd that Fine Gael backbenchers, en masse, are up in arms about reinstating an ambassador to the Holy See rather than reinstating hospital beds or special needs assistants.
How odd that followers of any creed should work themselves into a lather about embassies, which are secular rather than the spiritual outposts -- if churches were being boarded up, they would have a point. But what have embassies to do with religion?
