God hasn't gone away, you know

THANK you for printing the fine letter from Liam Sheehan (Irish Examiner, December 8) replying to your columnist Peter Levy's offensive attack on religion (Irish Examiner County, November 23).

Thank you too for printing Peter Levy's attempt at a reply. It was empty and evasive - like something a naughty child would say when caught stealing from the biscuit tin.

Editor, would you do us a favour - spare us this anti-Catholic stuff, at least during the Christmas season.

Your readers deserve something better than the bigotry of Peter Levy and Anthony Sheridan (Irish Examiner, Letters, December 13).

Meantime, a little parable for both these gentlemen - they may not have heard of an exchange of letters between German philosopher Nietzsche and God. Nietzsche wrote: "God is dead. Signed, Nietzche." Return post brought a reply: "Nietzche is dead. Signed God" God was right: Nietzche died in 1900. God is still around: he hasn't gone away, you know.
