Nail on the head Steve. Thank you.

Hmmm, I don't think the lack of leadership from some Unionist politicians excuses the lack of humanity from some Church (big C) leaders. I was listening to one Church leader dismiss the Saville price tag by saying that you couldn't put a price on truth and justice. True (if trite), but I was listening to this with a friend who'd lost a brother in a bombing, and Church leaders don't appear to attach any value to her loss, not in public anyway. It annoyed me more than it annoyed her, but it does make me angry that the Church is always following another's agenda at best, a puppet at worst.

Sometimes I wish the Church in NI would give up on the bandwagon-jumping and start showing a little compassion.... and maybe leadership for justice too, no matter how uncomfortable.
