Scottish cardinal raps 'aggressive secularism'
Catholic World News - April 25, 2011
Cardinal Keith O’Brien of Edinburgh criticized “aggressive secularism” in an Easter Sunday homily, drawing scornful treatment in a Guardian news account.
“Christians must be united in their common awareness of the enemies of the Christian faith in our country, of the power that they are at present exerting, and the need for us to be aware of that right to equality which so many others cry out for,” Cardinal O’Brien said.
The Guardian, in a transparent effort to discredit the cardinal’s statement, pointed out that Prime Minister David Cameron had invited religious leaders to an Easter meeting at 10 Downing Street. That meeting, the newspaper claimed, “will be seen as an endorsement of Britain's Christian heritage and identity amid a perceived climate of anti-religious sentiment.”
