Anti Catholicism Condemned
#1
In a recent address delivered in Sydney, Australia’s attorney general decried anti-religious bigotry. “Religious freedom is every bit as important as political freedom,” said Senator George Brandis. “Members of the Islamic community are sometimes the victims of suspicion and hostility, directed against them by those ignorantly seeking to blame terrorist violence upon Koranic teaching,” he continued. “Members of Christian faiths-- in particular the Catholic faith-- are routinely the subject of mockery and insult by prominent writers and commentators.” Brandis then quoted a remark by a retired high-court justice that anti-Catholicism is “the racism of the intellectuals,” adding, “or perhaps he should have said the pseudo-intellectuals.”

A total of 70 people were victims of 64 hate crimes motivated by anti-Catholic bias in the US in 2014, according to a report issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on November 16. The report, which lists crimes motivated by the victim’s race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, gender, and gender identity, found that there were 609 anti-Jewish, 154 anti-Muslim, and 25 anti-Protestant hate crimes committed during the same year.

The Holy See delegation to the OSCE has made a statement at a meeting on Hate Crimes.

“The  poor  attention  given  to  hate  crimes committed against majority communities and the fact that hate crimes motivated by religious bias or prejudice are under-reported and under-recorded …imply that the hate crimes against members of religions and, especially against Christians, are certainly more numerous than those indicated [in annual reports],” said Monsignor Janusz Urbańczyk, the Permanent Representative of the Holy See to the OSCE.
