Poland asks Vatican to curb outspoken priest-broadcaster
CWN - June 27, 2011
The Polish government has asked for Vatican assistance in curbing the influence of the Father Tadeusz Rydzyk, the fiery Radio Maryja broadcaster.
The government sent a diplomatic note to the Holy See after an appearance by the Redemptorist priest in Brussels, where he complained that Poland has become a “totalitarian” country and questioned the patriotism of the nation’s current leaders.
“It’s Poland’s tragedy that since 1939 Poland hasn’t been ruled by Poles,” said Father Rydzyk, who has been a highly controversial figure for years. He complained that the current government leaders “don’t have a Polish heart.”
