Holy See at UN: new outspokenness in confronting anti-family agenda
February 25, 2011
The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) has observed that the Holy See’s diplomats have become more outspoken in confronting the radical anti-family agenda discussed in United Nations committees.
“Many delegations have commented on what they see as a new tenor and tone of the Holy See delegation,” C-FAM notes. “Delegations are also talking about how much more active the Holy See delegates have been in actual negotiations. Some delegations have greeted this outspokenness with chagrin and even hostility.”
Indian-born Archbishop Francis Assisi Chullikatt was appointed apostolic nuncio to the United Nations in July, succeeding Archbishop Celestino Migliore, who now serves as apostolic nuncio to Poland.
