Don’t disrespect pope or poke fun at Church

Comment on this story

Your comment below the picture relating to the article on the front page of Business Report (February 7), headed “Bidvest wins Adcock as CFR scores own goals”, is inappropriate, ill-informed and distasteful.

You have expressed an opinion on Pope Francis being unlikely to pray for Bidvest, when you do not have any idea at all on what the he prays for and does not pray for. I request that you keep your uninformed views to yourself. I also question why you “pull” the pope into this story and make such ignorant comments! Is the Business Report indirectly “having a go” at the Catholic faith?

If so, then please be more direct. I and possibly many other Catholic readers of your newspaper are likely to become former readers.
