    Mr Morgan when will you invite Pat Buchanan and Jennifer Rubin? Most American would love to hear these fine people.

    great debate between you and the atheist on the Catholic church. I must say he had the better side between you and him and incidentally, the church does allow condoms where people are already infected, especially where one one of married partners has an infection. I much enjoy your program so keep up the good work

    Could we be clear about something mentioned in Piers Morgan's show? The rule against priests marrying or married men becoming priests has NEVER been considered one of the RC Church's infallible dogmas. (If it were, they wouldn't allow exceptions.) So the pope could alter it. But the rule against women priests is considered infallible dogma. Mentioning both in the same breath confuses this point. (Full disclosure: I am not a religious believer unless you count my worship of simplicity.)
