Cardinal Erdö on Intolerance Against Christians in Europe

"In Europe... the social environment isn’t without problems. Just browse through the facts mentioned by the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians in Europe to be baffled by the number of cases taking place in Europe. People are discriminated against in either a veiled or opened manner, on their workplaces or in different areas of social life, and this only because they are Christian."

"The influence of a certain anti-Christian attitude is being spread through the media, in textbooks or in public opinion... In many cases, the Christian faith or the Church are treated unfairly or in a misinformed manner... We can not remain silent facing such attacks against religious freedom." H.E. Cardinal Péter Erdo, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest, President of the CCEE (Conseil des Conférences épiscopales d'Europe), opening speech of the workshop of the Assemblee, Tirana, September 29th, 2011.
