Irish political party apologizes for misstating bishop’s position on abortion
Catholic World News - April 22, 2014
The Irish political party Sinn Féin has apologized for misrepresenting a bishop’s position on abortion in its campaign literature.
The party had claimed that Bishop John McAreavey of Dromore supports its pro-abortion position.
Calling the assertion “untrue and most damaging,” Bishop McAreavey said that “I cannot emphasise enough the seriousness of this action which has misused my good name and impugned the teaching reputation of my ministry as bishop,” according to the Irish Catholic.
