Linz, the Amnesty International Diocese

Reactions 
Those who wait for a condemnation from the Bishop will wait a long time. Cathcon understands he has to check everything with his predeccesor. In the most liberal Churches of the Diocese, the predecessor's name is inserted into the Canon of the Mass, along with the presiding bishop. A two headed Diocese- a license to revolt.

Cathcon translation-


World-wide, more and more bishops and the faithful are distancing themselves from Amnesty International as a result of their pro-abortion policy. In Linz, the clocks tick differently: next Monday, the official Women's Commission of the Diocese of Linz has organized with AI a "Political Night Prayer"

The official Women's Commission of the Diocese of Linz together with the "Amnesty International" has organized next Monday a so-called "Political Night Prayer: no to violence against women". In recent days and weeks have been quite a few worldwide dioceses, bishops and parish groups have distanced themselves from the pro-abortion activities of Amnesty International distances, organizing in different regions over recent months an alternative. This is how KATH.NET learned that also in the Diocese of Linz several pro-lifers and Catholics are horrified at the cooperation of the official Women's Commission with Amnesty.

The "Political Night Prayer" to be held on Monday evening at the Martin Luther Church in Linz, according to the Diocese of Linz, is under the direction of Sonja Riha, (seen here on the right, saying goodbye to her predecessor, who has found fame as a stealth priestess.)the women's representative of the Diocese of Linz. Co-organizers include Catholic Women's Movement of the Diocese, the House for Women in Linz, the Protestant Women's Working Group and the Upper Austrian Women's Forum for Feminist Theology and finally Amnesty International.

Cardinal Renato Martino, President of the Pontifical Council, Iustitia et Pax, in June this year, called on all Catholics as a result of their abortion policy not for a donation to Amnesty International. Until a few months ago, within this "human rights" organization, abortion remained a neutral question. Now, it presses governments that women under certain circumstances can kill unborn children. Martino stressed that due to this policy, AI should get no more money from Catholics and Catholic organizations.
