If someone comes to visit you, accepts your hospitality and then proceeds to lecture you on all of your dysfunctional ways, would it be acceptable to be angry? ("Obama's remarks about Catholic schools spark new fight with church," Web, June 20)
It seems hypocritical to criticize Catholic and Protestant families in Northern Ireland for sending their children to private educational institutions while Sasha and Malia Obama, President Obama's daughters, attend the prestigious Sidwell Friends School. Can you imagine the reaction if the president gave a similar speech in Tel Aviv or the West Bank?
Why doesn't Mr. Obama attend to the problems in our own country, problems such as the deficit, high unemployment, job creation, homosexual marriage, illegal immigration, etc., instead of criticizing Northern Ireland?
