Vatican Statement on the Cartoon Affair

The Vatican Press Office has issued a statement with regard to the Cartoon Affair. It is an “unsigned” statement, so we don’t know exactly from which office it emanated. The statement condemns:

  • Any assertion of a “right” to offend the religious sentiment of believers in the name of the right to freedom of thought and expression
  • Forms of exasperated criticism or derision of others which manifest a lack of human sensitivity
  • Any reaction in the face of offense which fails the true spirit of all religion, eg. reactions of violent protest

The voice of reason.
