Ägyptischer Bischof nennt Rede von Christenverfolgung verfehlt

Unter den Muslimbrüdern litten «sowohl Christen wie Muslime», sagte koptisch-katholischer Bischof aus Alexandria im Interview mit Radio Vatikan
Vatikanstadt (kath.net/KNA) Nach Worten des ägyptischen katholischen Bischofs Youhanna Golta herrscht in Ägypten derzeit keine Christenverfolgung. Unter den Muslimbrüdern litten «sowohl Christen wie Muslime», sagte der koptisch-katholische Bischof aus Alexandria im Interview mit Radio Vatikan am Sonntag. Diese Islamisten attackierten unterschiedslos Kirchen, Schulen, Museen und andere Einrichtungen.
Zwar nutzten sie «die Schwäche der christlichen Minderheit, um anzugreifen, um zu töten», räumte Golta ein. «Aber unsere muslimischen Freunde, das heißt die Mehrheit der Muslime, hilft den Christen und unterstützt sie.»

Der 76-jährige Vertreter des koptisch-katholischen Patriarchen Ibrahim Sidrak wandte sich mit Nachdruck gegen eine besondere Aufmerksamkeit für die ägyptischen Christen. Die Gesellschaft Ägyptens dürfe nicht geteilt werden. «Die Vereinigten Staaten haben das nicht verstanden, auch nicht die Europäische Union», sagte der Kirchenmann.

Dabei gebe es «keine Straße, kein Gebäude, keine Stadt, die allein für die Muslime oder allein für die Christen wäre», so Golta. «Neben der islamischen Al-Azhar-Universität sind christliche Läden, neben der großen Kathedrale von Kairo leben Muslime. Ägypten ist ein Land, das keine Teilung akzeptiert.» Demgegenüber kursierten in westlichen Ländern «verzerrte und falsche Informationen», sagte der Bischof. Zugleich bestätigte er, in den vergangenen Tagen seien rund 40 Kirchen angezündet und hunderte christlicher Geschäfte in Brand gesteckt worden. Auch habe es Morde an Christen gegeben.

The Moral Cost of Cooperation in Evil
By Colin Donovan

March 11 column on HHS mandate's consequences: The fact that the victim of abortion, including a “contraceptive abortion,” is small and defenseless, having little cultural or civil protection, only makes the evil greater — and the duty to oppose it greater as well.

Back in the 1850s, if you were sheriff in a “free state,” one in which slavery was prohibited, and bounty hunters came to your county, you were obliged by the Fugitive Slave Act to assist them in the capture of runaway slaves. Once captured, a slave could be returned home or killed in punishment, as the “owner” wished.

Law enforcement officers had no conscience protection that would have allowed them to refuse to assist in the capture of slaves.

The Constitution, the Congress, the executive branch and finally the Supreme Court, in Dred Scott v. Sandford, protected the rights of the slave owner, but not the slave, nor the person who found slavery to be evil.

No doubt, some will object to the comparison of the Fugitive Slave Act and the Health and Human Services contraception mandate. They would argue that slavery may be the greatest evil ever perpetuated in the name of the United States and in contraception neither a human life is involved, nor any evil at all.

However, from the point of view of those who believe human life begins at conception, the analogy is apt.

In point of fact, “contraception” is not really just contra-conception. With the exception of barrier methods and spermicides, the widely used means of birth control are dual purpose.

If they fail to prevent ovulation, they make the uterus inhospitable to the newly created human life.

This “abortifacient effect” makes the use of the term “contraception” and “contraceptive mandate,” as well as the dismissing of moral objections because “it’s not abortion,” morally and logically outrageous.

It would be like judging a man who killed someone in the course of a robbery only as a robber, the lesser of the two effects.

“Contraception” not only prevents human life — it kills it. This is a fact that almost no one on the other side is willing to address, especially with regard to the ethical consequences.

For the citizen who accepts without moral equivocation that human life begins at conception, the opposition to the mandate is as firm as the opposition of those who opposed the devaluation of slaves to three-fifths of a person, or to property.

Using our analogy of the Fugitive Slave Act, therefore, we will refuse formal cooperation. We will not be of one will with the slave owner and the bounty hunter, nor will we actually participate in the capture of slaves.

They are human beings in our eyes and treating them otherwise devalues both them and us.

We will likewise not render the immediate material cooperation of providing the kind of aid to the bounty hunters without which the capture of slaves could not be accomplished. We thus cannot provide oral or written information about where to find slaves or funds for general bounty hunting, because unless we’re self-deceived, we know exactly what the money would be used for: manacles and shackles to capture and transport slaves, possibly to their deaths.

Among the forms of mediate material cooperation, actions not directly connected to the capture and punishment of slaves, there are two kinds: immediate (or proximate) material cooperation and remote material cooperation. These presume that the will does not approve of slavery, otherwise the cooperation would be formal.

Immediate material cooperation has some causal connection to slavery, more or less close. We refuse to cooperate, therefore, with any organization among whose primary ends are the upholding of the institution of slavery and the intellectual, political and economic edifice surrounding it. To do so would have the immediate material effect of advancing slavery itself, even if my support would be for some seemingly good but lesser purpose.

No proportional reason could ever justify such a degree of material support for slavery.

Finally, of the lesser form of mediate material cooperation, remote material cooperation: Since in such cooperation the causal connection is distant, even if not non-existent, we are able to cooperate with individuals and institutions who have some connection to slavery or among whose lesser purposes some support for slavery may be found.

This will no doubt be necessary, as support for slavery is widespread, and few organizations are untouched by it.

However, we will lend even this kind of material cooperation only for proportionately justifying reasons. An example of this would be material cooperation with our own government in matters other than slavery. We understand that individuals with whom we cooperate, and material means we provide through taxes, may incidentally work to continue slavery.

However, the disorder of political and economic disruption, and especially civil violence, would be a far greater evil than the remote material cooperation of a citizen. Political action, litigation, non-violent protest, even civil disobedience, will be our only recourses.

As noted earlier, the analogy will not appeal to some. However, it brings into relief by a concrete historical example the moral cost of cooperation in evil, any evil.

History is replete with such examples, from pre-Christian Rome to Nazi Germany to our own day. The fact that the victim of abortion, including a “contraceptive abortion,” is small and defenseless, having little cultural or civil protection, only makes the evil greater — and the duty to oppose it greater as well.

This is why the HHS contraception mandate should not be imposed on any American citizen — and why no compromise can ever be accepted.

Colin Donovan, STL, is vice president for theology at EWTN. He can be heard on EWTN Radio’s Open Line Fridays from 3-5 p.m.

Pope Challenges U.S. Bishops to Battle “Radical” Anti-Christian Agenda

As many Catholic dioceses across America step up their efforts to protect the unborn and defend traditional marriage and family, Pope Benedict XVI (photo) is warning Catholic Church leaders to prepare for a protracted conflict against forces committed to a “radical secularism” which threatens not only the Christian faith, but the world as a whole.

Speaking to a group of U.S. bishops visiting the Vatican for spiritual renewal, the Pope said that the moral consensus that helped to define America and lead it over the last 200 years is being significantly eroded “in the face of powerful new cultural currents which are not only directly opposed to core moral teachings of the Judeo-Christian tradition, but increasingly hostile to Christianity as such.”

These cultural currents, he said, whether opposing the Christian faith in the name of “scientific rationality” or through the manipulation of political power, “represent a threat not just to Christian faith, but also to humanity itself and to the deepest truth about our being and ultimate vocation, our relationship to God.”

He advised the Catholic Church shepherds that when a society tries to suppress the mystery of the gospel and to close the door to its transcendent truths, that culture “inevitably becomes impoverished and falls prey, as the late Pope John Paul II so clearly saw, to reductionist and totalitarian readings of the human person and the nature of society.”

God save the Hungarians (III): the EU’s crusade against Hungary likely to end in defeat and ridicule?

Posted on | January 25, 2012 by J.C. von Krempach, J.D. |
Last week, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban appeared before the European Parliament’s plenary session (watch the full debate here) to defend his government’s value-oriented reform policy against leftist/liberal/green/communist assailants.
While Orban remained calm and spoke to the point, some of his opponents were visibly not able to control themselves. When asked by conservative MEPs to add some substance to their allegations and to explain more precisely when and where Hungary had violated fundamental EU provisions, former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt exploded in helpless rage (see at 15:47:26 on the video), yelling that the problem was not “that or that article, but the whole philosophy behind the operation of what is happening at the moment”.
Here, at the latest, it became quite clear that what is going on at this moment is a crusade of left-wing and liberal politicians against a government that they fear will not share their cultural agenda.
The allegations about Hungary having violated EU law seem to be nothing than a mere pretext in this debate.
After weeks of loud-mouthed drumbeating in the media, where it announced that it would “call Hungary to order”, the Commission seems to have been desperately looking for some issues on which it could base formal legal procedures against Hungary. What it has come up with is less than convincing. As one can read in a press release published by the Commission some days ago, those issues relate to “the independence of its central bank and data protection authorities as well as over measures affecting the judiciary”.
Sources within the Commission’s own Legal Service (who prefer not to be identified) have expressed their serious concern over the apparent lack of foundation of the procedures tha Commission is intending to launch. “We are discussing this here among colleagues, but nobody of us understands what might be the legal basis for those allegations against Hungary. It’s a complete mystery”, one legal expert said.
However that may be, it should be clear that issues related to the independence of a country’s central bank and data protection authorities, even if ultimately a violation of Community Law is found, can hardly justify that that country is “turning away from democratic values”. In actual fact, these seem to be rather technical issues, and it should be reminded that the Commission opens hundreds and hundreds of similar proceedings against all Member States every year, without anyone affirming that those countries are turning their back on human rights and democracy. Thus, it would seem advisable to tune the rhetorics down a little bit, and return to normal business…
But let us nevertheless briefly look at the third issue on which the Commission wants to launch proceedings against Hungary. As we read in the Commission’s press release, it is about “the independence of the judiciary” (nothing less!).

The infringement case affecting the judiciary focuses on the new retirement age for judges and prosecutors and relates to Hungary’s decision to lower the mandatory retirement age for judges, prosecutors and public notaries from 70 years to the general pensionable age (62 years) as of 1 January 2012.
EU rules on equal treatment in employment (Directive 2000/78) prohibit discrimination at the workplace on grounds of age. Under the case-law of the Court of Justice of the EU, an objective and proportionate justification is needed if a government decides to reduce the retirement age for one group of people and not for others. This principle was affirmed when the Court ruled that prohibiting airline pilots from working after the age of 60 constitutes discrimination on grounds of age.
In Hungary’s case, the Commission has not found any objective justification for treating judges and prosecutors differently than other groups, notably at a time when retirement ages across Europe are being progressively increased and not lowered. The situation is even more legally questionable because the government has already communicated to the Commission that it intends to raise the general retirement age to 65.
To be honest, the Hungarians would be very stupid not to wait seeing this case go to the European Court of Justice: the reasoning is so patently absurd that the Commission can hardly hope to win the battle.
First and foremost, it is grotesque to assume that a law assimilating the retirement age for one particular group to that of the rest of society should be ‘discriminatory’. In reality, it sets an end to discrimination.
Secondly, it is difficult to understand how a law that lowers a mandatory age for retirement can be “discrimination on grounds of age”. It is in the nature of retirement pensions that older people receive them, whereas younger people don’t. And if it is discriminatory to cut off professional careers by fixing a mandatory retirement age, then it must be completely irrelevant whether that age is set at 62 or 70 years, the one being as arbitrary as the other.
Maybe someone should tell the Commission that laws setting a mandatory retirement age exist in all Member States – not only for judges, but for civil servants in general. If fixing a mandatory retirement age violates Directive 2000/78, then the Commission must first change the Statute of its own officials (which currently foresees compulsory retirement at age 63), and then initiate infringement procedures against all Member States, not only against Hungary.
But the Commission’s argument is that “an objective and proportionate justification is needed” – and apparently was not provided by the Hungarian Government – “if a government decides to reduce the retirement age for one group of people and not for others”. In other words, all of a sudden the argument is not any more that the measure discriminates on grounds of age but that it is between different professions: judges and prosecutors should not be treated differently than other groups. But that’s precisely what the controversial law is doing: it aligns the retirement age of judges and prosecutors to that of other groups. So what on earth is wrong with it???
Maybe what the Commission means to say is that if the retirement age for judges is reduced by eight years, then the retirement age for everyone else must be reduced in the same way, bringing the general retirement age down to 54 years? That would, however, be a strange way of interpreting the Equality Directive: it would mean that the Directive’s purpose was to prevent equality and preserve difference in treatment…
In addition, being a judge purely and simply isn’t one of the ‘suspicious grounds’ recognized by the Directive, which prohibits discrimination “on the grounds of religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation”. The Directive thus does not seem to prohibit different retirement ages for different professions.
Maybe what has raised the Commission’s concern is that for persons employed in the private sector the retirement age is not compulsory, whereas it is compulsory for judges and prosecutors (and, indeed, for civil servants in general). But there is an important difference between civil servants and persons employed in the private sector: while an employee in a private firm would lose his job once he is no more capable of delivering proper work, judges and civil servants generally are protected against being fired, so that they might cling to their posts until they are 100 years old. This is precisely the reason why a mandatory retirement age is needed in the public sector, whereas it is not needed in the private sector. Hence, even if the Directive does explicitly mention age as a ‘suspicious ground’ for discrimination, it seems absurd to say that it prevents Member States from setting a mandatory retirement age for civil servants.
If an argument relating to “discrimination” must be made at all costs, then the Commission might have to build its case on the concept of ‘indirect’ rather than ‘direct’ discrimination: it could argue that the law, despite seemingly being the same for all, puts at a disadvantage a particular group of judges, namely those having started their careers under the auspices of communism. But that would of course require the Commission to openly admit that the ‘victims’ it seeks to protect against ‘discrimination’ are in fact the old ex-Communists, who still occupy many key posts in the Hungarian judiciary system…
One thing is clear: the judges affected by the Government’s measure (i.e. those aged between 62 and 70 today) mostly have started their careers before 1989, and have been selected, trained, and appointed, at a time when absolute loyalty to the Communist Party was a primordial requirement for anyone wishing to work as a judge. Is it really so wrong for Hungary to accelerate the transition from Communism to democracy? And is it realy a legitimate policy objective for the EU’s élites to prevent this transition from taking place??
Anti-Discrimination laws, it appears, can be put to a strange use…

Movements like the Spanish 15-M, or the American Tea Party are spontaneous movements which indicate that democracy — while a good system of government — is currently in crisis. What this means is that there are some citizens whose voices are not being heard — so they have created other ways of participating in the political process.
This very thing is occurring right now in Spain. The group Hazte Oir (literally: “Have Your Say”) is a group of citizens who, for a decade now, have been looking for effective ways to express their disagreement with the state of things in Spain. The thing about Hazte Oir is that they represent a Spanish majority — a majority that has not been sufficiently taken into account. It was Hazte Oir that stood strong against the socialist and anti-religious government of former Spanish prime minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.
Now that a less aggressive party is in power, Hazte Oir is preparing for a new, long-term strategy. They, along with a few other Spanish groups, plan to continue to represent the majority of Spaniards — by fighting to defend basic human rights of life and family, including working to change laws on issues like abortion.
Last November Hazte Oir organized the “5th Congress of e-Citizens” in Madrid. At this gathering, Carlos Polo, Director of PRI’s Latin American Office, spoke about Hazte Oir’s new way of doing politics. In this talk, Polo drew a comparison between the battle Hazte Oir is currently fighting, and the battle fought long ago by British abolitionists at the end of the 18th century.
The comparison didn’t fall on deaf ears. With the change of government, Hazte Oir’s change of pace has involved a media-savvy campaign called “Abolition of Abortion”, which is already having extraordinary impact on Spanish politics. For instance, its first major success was to get the new vice president to make a statement, saying that the current abortion law will be changed. But this is obviously not enough, and Hazte Oir has promised to take further steps. The “Abolition of Abortion” campaign promises to forge ahead, and PRI in Europe has pledged to put in our bit to aid them.
So congratulations to Hazte Oir for an exciting new campaign! It is living proof that Spanish citizens can organize, as the British abolitionists of 200 years ago did in order to defend a basic human right that most people do not understand. Just as in that time, there were people who scoffed at the idea of the freedom of slaves; today many people do not recognize the importance of defending the rights of unborn children. Platforms of people like Hazte Oir can repeat the successes of these abolitionists, since we believe this civic fight is essential not only for children but for the future of society.

Q: In ‘04, after the war, you said, “the Bush administration deserves a lot of credit for getting it right in Iraq.” Do you believe the Bush administration is still “getting it right”? In Iraq, what would you do differently?
SANTORUM: The plans that my opponent has laid out in some of his speeches and I’ve laid out in mine are basically the same thing the administration is trying to do.

FRONT ROYAL, Va., Jan. 11, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Father Shenan J. Boquet, president of Human Life International, today called on Hungary's political leadership to stand strong against threats by the European Union to withhold financial aid if certain conditions were not met. The conditions, as reported by the Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet, were that the state must drop charges of corruption against its socialist former president, and it must drop a section in its new constitution which defines marriage as being between a man and a woman.
