Polish government protests on outspoken 'radio priest'
July 13, 2011
The Polish government has made a series of formal and informal protests to Church officials after a controversial priest charged that his country “has not been governed by the Polish people” since World War II.
Father Tadeusz Rydzyk, the founder of the influential Radio Maryja broadcasting network, has frequently been a target of public criticism. But his claim that the current government is “totalitarian” drew angry responses from the foreign ministry. Diplomatic officials have spoken with their counterparts in the Vatican, as well as Polish prelates and the apostolic nuncio in Warsaw.
