Scotland’s anti-Catholicism problem ‘must be recognised and accepted before progress can be made

Peter Kearney, director of the Scottish Catholic Media Office, said that open and wide debate on the matter of religious intolerance in Scotland is ‘scandalously… neither encouraged nor facilitated.’

“Scotland has first and foremost a problem with anti-Catholicism,” he said. “This must be recognised and accepted before progress can be made.”


How can this be? We all saw “Braveheart”: William Wallace promoted the speaking of Latin. :wink:

You need to look to later Scottish history to see why such attitudes persist.

I believe that we should do all in our power to eliminate such anti-Catholic attitudes so that the Gospel may be more easily spread.
