Spanish bishop urges Basque separatist group to disband

Catholic World News - September 13, 2011

A Spanish bishop has urged the Basque separatist group ETA to dissolve itself and to repent of its past involvement in terrorism.

Bishop Jose Ignacio Munilla of San Sebastian said that ETA should show “the courage to disband and to clearly acknowledge the evil it has committed.” He encouraged the faithful to pray for a softening of the hearts of ETA leaders, moving them along the road to peace. The Church, the bishops said, will aid the cause of peace through “Christian concern for the victims of violence.”
