Over the last few years we have had all sorts of demonstrations, violent and not. They have mainly concerned cartoons depicting a 'prophet', Jerry Springer The Opera, the new UK law making it illegal to discriminate against gay people.

We have had no demonstrations about 7/7 or 9/11. None about the abuse of children by priests, none about the genocide taking place in various countries.

It seems to me that those who have demonstrated are self centred. They only get upset if their precious ideas are not held up by all. It seems they only feel the need to demonstrate when it is personal to them.

I respect any one's right to believe as they wish. Don't ask me to respect the belief though.

Hi Colin, if you follow the link below you will see a story about a Catholic Bishop who was abused by a priest in the Catholic church when he was a young boy and who recently spoke about his experiences in support of other victims. The church is now trying to silence him and his entire congregation by forcing him into retirement and closing down his church.
