Report: Catholic faith under attack in Scotland

September 3, 2007

From The Herald:

Catholics in Scotland were yesterday warned that their faith was coming under attack from a rising tide of secularism.

Mario Conti, the Archbishop of Glasgow, urged his flock to resist threats to their way of life from everything from same-sex civil partnerships to anti-sectarian campaigners critical of denominational schooling.

The archbishop did so in a special sermon to mark the quarter century since the first ever papal visit to Scotland, by John Paul II in 1982.

He said: “At a distance of 25 years, we need to reflect on the Holy Father’s words: In so many areas of life the most fundamental principles of our Christian life are not only questioned, but ridiculed and threatened with sanction.’ “Individualism has come to predominate the growth of the quest for individual rights has taken precedence over what is right.”
