Panelists criticize UN committee’s report on Holy See

Catholic World News - March 07, 2014

Three panelists from the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute and the Family Research Council have strongly criticized the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child’s recent report on the Vatican’s response to the child sex-abuse scandal, the Christian Post reported.

The committee called on the Holy See to reconsider its teaching on abortion, make “sexual and reproductive health” part of the curriculum of all Catholic schools.

“This is not a Kristallnacht, but it is a breaking of windows, because it makes very clear what the agenda is,” said panelist Patrick Fagan, referring to the persecution of Jews under the Nazi regime. “You have a very long-term battle going on about fundamental issues of humankind.”
