Cardinal Bertone seeks action on persecution of Christians
CWN - December 01, 2010
Cardinal Tarciscio Bertone demanded action against anti-Christian prejudice in an address to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). “Society must fight anti-Christian discrimination with the same determination that it fights anti-Semitism and Islamophobia,” the Vatican Secretary of State said at an OSCE meeting in Astana, Kazakhstan. Cardinal Bertone reminded European leaders that Christians suffer persecution more than any other religious group in the world; he noted that “more than 200 million Christians are living in difficult situations.”
Cardinal Bertone went on to recommend against in support of healthy family life, protection for refugees and migrants, and an end to human trafficking.
