Here is statement issued from Poland by Fr. Mariusz Brigiel, S.J. in regard to the current protests being held in Poland against the Supreme’s Court decision which did not go down well with the Pro-Choice people.
” I guess the majority of those protesting are those born after 1990 (and) have enjoyed the freedom from Communism but did not suffer under the Communist rule. Their parents ALL found refuge pre-1990 under the umbrella of the Catholic Church during those repressive times. I never forget hearing Fr Tom Forrest at the Berne Conference in 1990 when he warned those who flocked to this Conference once all the country barriers were opened: “You have been freed from Communist rule; now don’t think that the Capitalist and Western values will give you real freedom. Only Christ can give you the real true freedom.”
