Cardinal Schönborn on Turning the Other Cheek with Regard to the Public Debate

"Jesus said to disciples to turn „the other cheek“ if they got hit on one. But he also asked those who hit him unjustly: „Why did you hit me?“ Christians in Europe are beginning to ask their allegedly very toleranted opponents: Why are you hitting the Church, and us? Are we doing anything evil by defending the family, unborn life, by helping Europe to have children, which are the future?"

His Eminence Christoph Cardinal Schönborn in his column „Answers“ in the Austrian Daily „Heute“ on January 25th, 2008.
