Keep religion out of meetings

Published 21/02/2012

Since Alf McCreary is demanding tolerance of 'Christian' prayers at council meetings (Weekend Review, February 18), it's clear he has no interest in creating a neutral, or non-sectarian, environment in such public places.

Would Mr McCreary like it if atheists made an issue of their unbelief at council meetings? All we atheists ask is for believers to keep religion in buildings designed for that purpose.
