Church bias is all wrong

It's not just in the allocation of time on Radio Ulster’s Thought for the Day that the Presbyterian Church fares better than the other main denominations (Write Back, August 10 ).

Every year Radio Ulster broadcasts the opening service of the Presbyterian General Assembly. The opening services of the Church of Ireland General Synod and the Methodist Conference are not broadcast (The Catholic Church does not have an annual meeting comparable to the General Assembly.)

It is time for the Rev Dr Bert Tosh to explain why his own church consistently receives preferential treatment on Radio Ulster.
