Czech bishops criticize EU’s human rights resolution

At a session of the Czech Bishops’ Conference on Thursday, representatives of the Czech Catholic Church criticized the European Parliament for its Resolution on Human Rights. A spokesperson for the conference said that delegates did not agree with articles of the resolution which supported same-sex marriage and the creation of youth advisory centres where, the conference said, teenagers would be able to discuss abortion. The bishops wished the Czech government success in its efforts to promote peaceful cohabitation throughout Europe as part of the country’s EU presidency, and called on believers to pray for all those involved in the Czech presidency.
