Brave Dana stands firm

Sir -- Pat Kenny's recent interview with Dana epitomised the total opposition of a section of society to the Catholic Church at present. It appears that the once dreaded notice stating "No Catholics need apply" is back again. The opposition to Dana is because she is a practising Catholic who accepts what the church teaches. Kenny barraged her about abortion and same-sex marriage with the question "what would you do if....?" He appears convinced that this Government will push for abortion and same-sex marriage.

In the circumstances Dana's performance was inspiring; she refused to be bullied. She would make a wonderful President and ambassador to the whole world. What a reception she would get from our exiles in the US.
