Via Irish Times Letters:
At long last the Roman Catholic Church has expressed concern about the criminalising of public worship in the Republic (“Catholic archbishop criticises ‘provocative’ law on services”)
The Government does not seem to care that in this respect the country is out of step with most other countries in Europe. At Easter, we had a ludicrous situation that churches in the North were able to celebrate Easter while in the South they were bolted and barred.
“To criminalise gathered worship is effectively to criminalise the practice of the Christian religion.”
It is “disproportionate and exceeds the limits of government authority.”
