This morning I was faced with passing two members of Sinn Fein when collecting their party's national church gate collection on the way into mass.
Both were well known to me.
I resented giving them some of my change due to the stance on abortion that their party has taken. Against my will I did give them some money.
But, before I parted with my cash I told them that they had some nerve to come to the gate collecting and cited that it was because of their position on abortion . Both just laughed. One of the collectors is an atheist and openly makes little of those who go to mass at the weekends.
