Pledging an oath

Fri, Aug 2, 2013, 01:07

Sir, – Andrew Robinson (August 1st), noting that one can’t even say hello in Irish without invoking “the Deity”, takes an “ah shur it’s grand” approach to the question of religious oaths in the Constitution. But it’s not grand, and it never will be grand, until such time as the so-called Republic of Ireland is a republic for every single one of its citizens, of all faiths and none. Though our Constitution regrettably implies as much, it is not the case that some citizens are more equal than others. – Yours, etc,
