South Korea: Church officials angered by actions of nation’s intelligence agency

Catholic World News - August 23, 2013

Church officials in South Korea criticized the National Intelligence Service for its reported illegal interference in last year’s presidential election, according to AsiaNews.

“We're seeing things that have never happened before in the history of constitutional government,” said Auxiliary Bishop Linus Lee Seong-hyo of Suwon at a special Mass attended by 100 priests.

“The Church is called to intervene for a very important reason, i.e., maintaining people's confidence in its government,” said Father Thaddeus Lee Ki-rak, secretary general of the bishops’ conference. “This is a fundamental moral issue.”
