Nairobi, Kenya, May 12, 2010 / 23:14 pm
The proposed Constitution of Kenya is “fundamentally flawed” because it paves the way for “abortion on demand” and recognizes Muslim civil courts, the Catholic bishops of the country have objected. They compared the proposed document, which is backed by the Obama administration, to an egg beginning to go bad.
In a Tuesday statement the bishops repeated their advice that the Kenyan people should reject the constitution.
"We do not believe that a document that is fundamentally flawed should be passed only with a very vague hope that it will be amended later, especially when the process of amendment is more difficult after than before,” they explained in an April 15 statement.
"To vote for the constitution is to vote for all of it, including its good and its bad provisions. It is impossible to separate them,” the bishops of Kenya said.
