Scotland: Church spokesman calls for campaign against anti-Catholicism

Catholic World News - February 21, 2011

Peter Kearney, director of the Scottish bishops’ media office, is calling for a government-funded campaign that targets anti-Catholicism.

“Over the last ten years significant amounts of public money have been given to organizations offering anti-sectarianism training and information,” he says. “Most, if not all, Scottish schoolchildren have been given talks, workshops and leaflets on the subject. Using the measurable criteria we have, there is no indication to date that the problem has diminished.”

“In the same way that annual drink-drive purges aren't referred to as road safety campaigns but specifically labelled in accordance with the behavior they seek to eradicate, so too should anti-sectarianism initiatives be labelled in a far more specific way” and address the “deep, wide, and vicious anti-Catholic hostility” in Scotland.
