Christianity is a force for good

AISLING O'Connor (DebateNI, December 10) displays all the characteristics of a cultural revolutionary. She, with many others, seems uninformed of the good that Christianity has done in the world. Despite its failings, it has been and is a force for good.

But she also seems, to my mind, to rejoice at the decline of Western civilisation, just as the members of the Frankfurt School would have her do.

This communist group realised that the West could be undermined by undermining the institutions: education, law, media and politics.

Ms O'Connor's comments describing religion as merely oppressive are in tune with this movement's aims.

So her comments are either those of a cultural revolutionary, or what communists would refer to as a "useful fool".
