Sir: The Head of the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland appears to believe that the fact that he has discovered a 20-year-old cutting in which paedophiles advocate a lower age of consent implies that the "gay lobby" can be accused of paedophilic motives.

If an archbishop really wishes to sink to that level of debate he should choose his ground more carefully. One does not have to go back anything like as far as 20 years to discover Catholic priests who are not only serial paedophiles but were in some cases protected from justice by the church.
