Fair Play for Presidents ….. And For Atheists. Letter to Editor published in Sunday Times on 3 May 2015

Dear Editor,

 I find it incredible that out government is on the one hand advocating “equal rights” in the marriage referendum and on the other promoting an extension of religious discrimination in the presidential age referendum.
  The religous oath required of presidents (and judges) is being extended to a new generation who might aspire to high office.
  This is so clearly a violation of equal rights that it is hard to see how anyone could propose both at the same time.
