Pope Benedict Blasts Human Rights Extremists Print E-mail

Actress Hillary.jpgThe modern human rights culture is no longer interested in protecting are hard-fought freedoms. Instead, human rights activists are suppressing liberty of conscience to restrain Christianity, Pope Benedict XVI said.

According to the Daily Telegraph of London, "in one of his biggest addresses of the year, Benedict XVI said that a false concept of human rights had gripped the western world.  As a result, he said, religion is being marginalized and symbols of faith, such as the cross, are being treated with growing hostility."

Also, he singled out that some charities and schools are refusing to permit the freedom of Christians to express or practice their faith and spoke about the necessity for "conscientious objectors" who would defend traditional morality and the faith.

As reported by the Telegraph, "the comments came in the Pope's annual New Year address to ambassadors from 179 States as well as bodies such as the European Union represented at the Vatican."

His address follows a Christmas homily in which he criticized plans for gay marriage in several nations including the United Kingdom.
