Be prepared to defend the Pope: a UK barrister answers legal arguments

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Sep 09, 2010

For readers in the United Kingdom (or elsewhere) who would like to be fully prepared to answer the spurious legal arguments raised by critics of the Church in advance of the papal visit—that the Pope should be arrested; that the Vatican is protecting abusive priests; etc—the Christendom Awake site has prepared very thorough answers, explained in detail by barrister Neil Addison of the Thomas More Legal Centre. The Pope’s critics probably won’t respond to logical analysis, but your friends and neighbors—and even the editor of your local newspaper—might. This is useful resource for anyone who wants to be fully prepared to defende the Holy Father.
