Letter to the Editor: Middle ages thinking

Imagine a 10-year-old orphan, adopted and being brought up by two loving and caring women, doing yoga excercises in a physical training class. What a nightmare it must be for Mr. [Justice Minister Ján] Čarnogurský. He's far too excited by the historical novels on the Great Inquisition, I'd assume. Back then it would have been more appropriate to perform this "witch-hunt" at a different kind of institution - something like the Ministry of Exorcism. That's exactly where Mr. Čarnogurský's 16th-century way of thinking would fit in.
