"Father Anthony Charanghat, spokesman of the Bombay Archdiocese, told IANS: 'The Pope is a highly revered spiritual leader and his concerns expressed from time to time regarding violation of fundamental rights and deprivation of religious freedom cannot be construed as a threat to the political governance of any country.' "
Father Charanghat might want to consult his encyclopedia. He might want to look under the topic "Polish Solidarity Movement" for starters.
I don't want to disagree with a priest but come-on! This is a threat to the powers that be in India. As it SHOULD be.
The Pope has a moral duty to speak out against injustice wherever it may be - as I believe we all do. Regardless if it's in Poland, Spain, France, England or anywhere else, defiance of evil is never wrong. Infact a little ruckous is sometimes in order.
God Bless Pope B16!
