.- In the latest edition of its weekly newspaper, the Archdiocese of Mexico rejected any connection with the organization âCatholics for a Free Choiceâ and clarified that the association is not part of the Catholic Church because of its support for the legalization of abortion, among other things.
The weekly paper, edited by Father Hugo Valdomero, questioned the origins of the group, as well as its purpose and its dissemination. âIt should surprise us to see a new âCatholicâ group promoting the right to use or consume some type of drug and that, based on polling data, decides to legalize the use of narcotics,â the text said.
âIt would be interesting to know what âCatholics for a Free Choiceâ intends to do: Reject Church authority? Do away with it? There are many questions to be answered. Who supports them? Why âCatholicsâ and not some other religion or sect?â questions the paper.
The Archdiocesan paper added, âThe Church respects mankind, and makes known her norms. Man decides if he will follow them or not, itâs his choice: the path he chooses is his decision.â
