Vow of silence better than decrying Papal visit

Guess the source of these words of wisdom:

“Scotland will be on display to the world during the Papal Visit, with the global television audience estimated at more than one billion. And Scotland being Scotland, for every sectarian there are two curmudgeons – the people who complain about every public event in our capital city, from the G8 summit to the papal visit, on the grounds they are inconvenienced by roads being closed, etc. Their tiresome bleating does no-one any good, and makes us all appear petty and small-minded. This particular group may like to consider a vow of silence along the lines practiced by the Catholic Trappist order of monks.”

The Scottish Catholic Observer? No, today’s Scotland on Sunday leader. Perhaps Scotland’s other leading national group could take a leaf out of the  SOS’s book.
