BILL Heaney wants God to save the Press, claiming – on this site – that, just as football has its football writers, so religion should have its religion correspondents. After all, he says, more people attend Church than go to football.
First, let’s do some quick disclaimers: I only know Bill Heaney through his online presences on allmediascotland.com and on Facebook. He strikes me as deeply religious and you cannot deny that he is a fantastic writer who more than served his time as a journalist. I was religious once (Roman Catholic) but am now quite the agnostic.
