Rival English groups to vie for media attention during Pope's visit
CWN - August 25, 2010
Two rival groups in England are hoping to exploit the publicity surrounding a September visit by Pope Benedict XVI to advance their own very different understandings of Catholicism. One group, Catholic Voices, will offer “ordinary Catholics” to comment for the media, giving standard explanations of Church teaching and practice. As a counterpoint, Catholic Voices for Reform will provide speakers to promote changes in Church teachings. Yet another group, calling for the ordination of women, has reserved advertising space on London city bus lines.
