Archbishop denounces de-Christianization in Argentina

.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina, warned this week the country is suffering from a “continuous process of de-Christianization,” with numerous legal attempts to rearrange “the structure of society.”

“The political lobby groups here are both cultural and ideological and in a clear but hidden way they are attempting to erode the traditional foundation of Argentinean culture,” said the Archbishop in his television program, “Keys to a Better World.”

Currently there are several legislative initiatives in Buenos Aires that seek to legalize same-sex unions, open the door to the legalization of abortion and finance sex-ed programs that promote promiscuity and homosexual relations.

The Archbishop exhorted the faithful to “wake up” to what is happening and he called on them to “clearly express your faith, especially in situations in which the problem is not exactly dogmatic but rather the defense of the natural order and the basic principles upon which an authentic civilization is built.”

He also denounced a certain “type of globalization” that seeks “to suffocate the presence of Christian thought in the lives of the people” through “a sort of anti-Christian ideological crusade or a massive attempt at persecution, although for now it may not involve bloodshed.”

According to the Archbishop, the lobby groups denounced last week by Cardinal Renato Martino “aim their darts especially at those Catholics who dare to express their Christian convictions with complete coherence in their cultural or political roles in the life of the society.”
