Mexico: Priest warns of confusion between secularism and anti-clericalism

Catholic News Agency: “An article, signed by Father Maurilio Martinez Tamayo, offered a reflection on the vision of secularism that prevails in the country, amidst a barrage of attempts by government officials and political groups to silence religious leaders . . . Mexico is a religious country that has been forced to wear secular garb that doesn’t fit. ‘When a religious minister expresses an opinion about the national life and judges the actions of politicians, just as any Mexican citizen can do in making use of the right to freedom of expression, the enemies of religious life launch threats against him for daring to raise his voice against the actions of officials,’ the priest noted.”
