Even helpless dog forced to suffer at hands of sectarian thugs

Editor's Viewpoint

Despite all the efforts to foster good community relations, some of them successful, it is depressing to note another example of sectarian stupidity demeaning our society.

A couple have been forced to leave their home because of their 'mixed marriage'.

How can some people continue to use that old-fashioned, objectionable term even in 2016?

Another casualty of such wanton badness was the couple's pet dog Fudge which also has lost its home. How dreadful that even a dog has to pay the price of our sectarian madness, because of some people here whose appalling behaviour is not even worthy of an animal

Happily, Fudge has found a new home, but it should never have come to this.
