.- The Archdiocese of Mexicoâs weekly newspaper is denouncing the national mediaâs mistreatment of the Mexican bishops for their defense of the unborn and their opposition to abortifacient drugs.
The newspaper slammed the radio, television and print coverage which condemns the position of the bishops and âtreats us as reactionary and inflexible.â
âIts enough to look at the newspapers of recent days to see the hatred with which the firm and courageous position of the bishops is discredited, enough to look at the political cartoons to see that when there is a lack of artistic creativity, vulgarity and offensiveness take its place,â said the Archdiocese.
Moreover, the newspaper lamented the use of the word âdemocracyâ to justify destructive attitudes, which far from building a better society, seem to destroy it.
The editorial says that destructive criticism seems today to be synonymous with intelligence and wisdom, as in the case of the opposition of the Catholic Church to the approval of the so-called âmorning-after pill.â
Referring to this, the Vice President of the Mexican Bishops Conference, Bishop Alberto SuÃ¡rez Inda, said the mission of defending life in world dominated by the âculture of deathâ has never been easy, but he assured that âout of conviction and fidelity to the commandments of God, the bishops denounce whatever is immoral.â
