Vatican spokesman lauds report on anti-Christian discrimination
December 13, 2010
Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office, offered praise for a new report that documents cases of intolerance and discrimination against Christians in Europe since 2005.
“The importance of the new report is precisely in its giving a long and detailed series of examples of intolerance toward Christians in Europe: acts of vandalism, of hatred, toward Churches and religious symbols, manifestations of hatred and offences against persons,” he said.
The report was issued by the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination, a Vienna-based organization.
