Even helpless dog forced to suffer at hands of sectarian thugs

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 18/01/2016

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.
