Moral authority. Responsibility
BACK FROM BREAK:
Well clearly the nuncio will be judged under the law of the Vatican city state, he falls under that jurisdiction as he's a diplomat.
certainly I think every local church and diocese has a moral duty to instruct people who come with disclosures about all their rights. That is a moral duty which the Holy See has to promote that people need to be educated about their rights and how to exercise them.
Q: Does that mean you can’t say anything at this stage about the questioned Miss H raised about accepting different forms.
(What is this 1952? It's awful that other parts of the world are still stigmatizing unmarried women who get pregnant.)
It's difficult for me to listen to so many things you're doing because in society I don't think we're facing these problems.
AND THE END OF THE HEARING IS HERE:
(I'm going back to work on Tinker Bell, will check in ever 30 secs or so until they talk about pedophile priests. May miss something. So far the questioners are making all the points. )
As the hearing ends, I'm hearing Whitney Houston sing, "I believe that children our our future"
