Condoms on a plate

I CANNOT let Linda Kelly’s knee-jerk response (‘When condoms are not on a plate’, Letters, September 12) to Sister Annunciate Forde go without comment.

Quite reasonably, Sr Annunciate (Letters, September 9) objected to your photograph of condoms at a graduation ball. What on earth does this have to do with Ms Kelly’s recent “fact-finding” jaunt to Uganda?

Ms Kelly then goes on to lecture the good sister on the “need to talk about sex.”

Sr Annunciate is talking about sex. In fact, she is the one who raised the topic.
