Editor,

Reference is made to Sunny Ntayombya’s opinion piece, “Goodbye Pope Benedict XVI, I won’t miss you though”, (The New Times, February 16).

The pope should at least be given credit for resigning as he is the first Pope to bow out in 600 years. While the world has changed as the years go by, the Catholic Church has not changed that much since its establishment.

Other churches today have women priests, married pastors, Gay bishops, advocate use of condoms and birth control. While the world has changed, the Catholic Church has stood by the same doctrines since time immemorial.

 If things have remained the same for thousands of years, I did not expect one person to change anything in 10 years or so.

Dear Sunny, although your article may hold some truth, the hatred towards the Catholic Church that transpires makes me absolutely disappointed. Are you really Catholic?

The best characteristic of a Catholic is to forgive and pray for better spiritual recovery for those who wounded you instead of cursing them.
