Kardinaal Pell in Oxford

Op 6 maart jl. gaf kardinaal George Pell te Oxford een lezing getiteld: "Varieties of Intolerance: Religious and Secular", die u hier kan lezen.

"Put simply, Christians have to recover their genius for showing that there are better ways to live and to build a good society; ways which respect freedom, empower individuals, and transform communities. They also have to recover their self-confidence and courage. The secular and religious intolerance of our day needs to be confronted regularly and publicly. Believers need to call the bluff of what is, even in most parts of Europe, a small minority with disproportionate influence in the media. This is one of the crucial tasks for Christians in the twenty-first century."
