Don't lecture us on social morals

TOM Cooper, from Dublin, (Writeback, July 17) declares northern society "bigoted and degenerate". He goes on to accuse our society of tolerating social and moral delinquency. All this based on the roundly-condemned example of one person's stupid ignorance.

Tom writes from a society that tolerated decades of institutional abuse of its vulnerable children, the denial of civil liberty to and sectarian ostracising of its Protestants and the disposal of hundreds of babies in a septic tank.

Lecture northern society on social responsibility and morals, Tom? I don't think so.
