Bad day for ecumenism as Moderator says no

The Presbyterian Moderator, Dr Harry Uprichard, has caused controversy by refusing to attend a service to celebrate the RUC’s George Cross Foundation- because of the involvement of catholic clergy.

Dr. Uprichard, who was on the receiving end of much criticism last summer when he appeared rather tardy in his condemnation of a loyalist campaign targeting catholic homes and properties in his native north Antrim, would undoubtedly have wished that the news would have been carried on any other day than Good Friday, given the significance of the day for all christians, regardless of denomination.
