Our thanks to R, a valued supporter of the party and a practising Christian, for emailing me about this matter. The content of his email takes up the rest of this post.
“Hi Mike, someone has just forwarded me a link to an article in the Catholic Herald, headlined, ‘Polish bishops urge legislators not to ratify European pact on violence against women’. This quote summarises their reasons:
The Family Affairs Council of the Polish bishops’ conference said: “This convention is not directed at countering violence, as its title suggests, but at imposing an ideological cultural revolution. It seeks to redefine sex as an alterable social phenomenon, rather than a biological one, and to blame the foundational communities of marriage and family for all violence.”
I wish that British bishops – Catholic and other – as well as senior clerics of other faiths, had the courage to speak out honestly, like their Polish counterparts. The article is here.”
