Italian cardinal decries propaganda campaign to redefine marriage

Catholic World News - January 03, 2014

In a strongly worded homily that he delivered on December 29, the feast of the Holy Family, the Archbishop of Bologna, Italy has decried the campaign to redefine marriage, saying that laws regarding marriage should not be revised “on the basis of fashionable trends.”

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra charged that “powerful lobbies which are quite often in control of the means of producing consensus” have thrown their support behind the effort to redefine marriage. The propaganda campaign, he said, has managed to “distract men and women from listening to the voice of God speaking in their consciences.”
