Cardinal Zen repeats: some Chinese bishops more loyal to Beijing
CWN - May 10, 2011
Cardinal Joseph Zen has renewed his criticism of Vatican efforts to reach a diplomatic accommodation with Beijing--this time in conversation with the Wall Street Journal.
Repeating arguments that he has voiced with rising urgency in recent months, Cardinal Zen says that some Chinese bishops are more loyal to the government than to the Church, and urges a hard line against cooperation with the government-backed Catholic Patriotic Association.
