Madigan’s call for female clergy

 

A chara, – Minister for Culture Josepha Madigan seems surprised that the Catholic Church is not Protestant (News, February 12th).

If there’s no difference between them, like Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael, they should definitely amalgamate. – Is mise,

Sir, – Fair dues to Josepha Madigan for calling for women priests.

It is about time we had a Mr Doyle on tea duty, and that it was Fr Edwina who had to worry about the local property tax on that big house in south Co Dublin. Up with this sort of thing! – Yours, etc,
