ORSI: The anti-Christian United Nations

Journeyers on the moral path must bear blows from the unbelievers

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

In many instances, it validates through the dissemination of U.N. propaganda the myth of an anti-humanitarian Catholicism.

Committees such as the one mentioned above hope that its criticisms will eventually be recognized by the full body of the United Nations General Assembly and the church will be condemned in international law.

The United Nations is working toward having the Catholic Church identified as an international criminal organization.

Church authorities are playing a dangerous game. They must remember that Christians are in the world, but not of the world. It is the job of the church to point out evil, not to cooperate with it.

Jesus said, “As the world hated me, so will it hate you.”

A strong response from Pope Francis to this latest U.N. anti-Catholic attack is in order. Archbishop Francis A. Challikatt, Vatican nuncio to the United Nations, should demand an apology.

If an apology is not forthcoming, the Holy See should give up its observer status at the United Nations, or, at the very least, stop signing onto documents that can be used to undermine the church.

The Rev. Michael P. Orsi is research fellow in law and religion at Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Fla.
