Malta's archbishop rues failure to stop divorce campaign
CWN - June 23, 2011
The leading Catholic prelate of Malta has expressed regret that the Church was not able to do more to fight the acceptance of divorce—which was approved by a voter referendum in May.
“We did our duty when we made a financial contribution” to the campaign against approval of the referendum, said Archbishop Paul Cremona, who observed that the campaign was a secular effort, not a Church campaign. Leaders of that campaign reported that the Church had contributed €180,000 to its efforts, of a total budget of €236,000.
