Letter:Pope's message fails to address realities of life

From The Ven William Paley

Sir: It is reassuring to know that the Pope is against the "culture of death", particularly in view of the fact that he was the only head of state in the world to recognise the brutal and murderous military junta whose three-year rule in Haiti ended late last year. It would appear that the pro-life principle is selectively applied by the Vatican.

Yours faithfully,

WILLIAM PALEY
