Australia’s Catholic bishops on Tuesday launched a major statement on digital communications, calling on all levels of society to overcome the hatred, division and exploitation that occurs online. The statement was released in view of Australia’s Catholic Church’s Social Justice Sunday that will be observed on 29 September.
Entitled, “Making it Real: Genuine human encounter in our digital world”, the Social Justice Statement was launched in Sydney by Bishop Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv, chairman of the Bishops Commission for Social Justice – Mission and Service.
Defending human dignity online
In the document, the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference (ACBC) says that governments, businesses and the broader community need to be more proactive in defending the dignity of people. It says everyone must work together to make the digital world a place of genuine human encounter. [Catholic clergy who preach on-line against sexual immorality?]
This promoter of globalism goes on to say:
The Australian bishops point out that it is becoming increasingly clear that digital platforms require wise governance and that international cooperation is required to achieve this. “The common good requires intervention, rather than leaving digital platforms to govern themselves.”
They also promote some kind of Net Neutrality:
As more and more essential services, such as banking, move online, the bishops say, “digital inclusion becomes mandatory for basic participation in society” and “our neighbours are not left by the side of the digital highway.”
OOOOooohhh, your EXCELLENCIES!!!! Protect us, puleeeeze!!!!!!!!
Get help with the Gibberish problem.
Maybe Vice President Pence can help you with your problem!
Didn't mean to cause a fuss. I was the one with the "gibberish." -Dirk
I thought it was funny. I knew a priest that didn’t take jokes well back in the day. He was really wound up tight.
A Dutchman and a sense of humor is known as an oxymoron. You should know that, Dirk.
No humor and no humility.
That's the Germans, Tancred, followed by the Japanese - your sorts of people.
Germans are very funny. Martin Luther, for example, was hilarious... for all of his other shortcomings.
Mr. Miyagi was hilarious also.
You’re just a bigot like sclerotic white liberals from the suburbs.
@Anonymous Sept. 3, 7:03pm, what does Pence have to do with anything?
Nothing much at all. That's why the clown was picked to run with the duelling banjos Trump.
Whoa, OUCH, a real Boomer Blumpf moment for Flaybrielle.
Speaking today at 8:46am was me. -Dirk
Like I said earlier, Can you feel the love tonight? This blog's comment section is like cats and dogs fighting. -Dirk
I’m a good boi.
Some red flags there - One: "Social Justice", Two: Bishop Vincent Van L. of Paramatta. Neither do I trust. They smack of off-track modernism left over from the old radical seminary days with feminist nuns and empty convents and touchy-feely felt hangers with slogans. Australia needs more of the 'good guys' (following full Catholic tradition and teaching) running dioceses. No more fluff.
Anonymous 11:21 PM, would you prefer bishops of the same character and profile as Pol Pot and a strong body of doctrine similar to Pius X's stridently anti-modernist, no nonsense declamations?
This could be the blue print for an even more effective new Evangelization that the durable duo of JP II and George Weigel devised.
Outside of the Chinese Patriotic Bishops, who are Marxist, and some Liberation Theology clergy from Latin America, I don’t know of any Bishops like Pol Pot.
Tancred, I gotta say you just knocked it out of the park with this last comment. -Dirk
Ah well, soon he will be the head of the One World Order Church as he gathers all the countries under his command and runs the Vatican into more debt. Not to worry, the gay guys will hold the fort there in Rome. He won't change my religion! Even if he calls in his UN troop. He now told us we must obey the U.N.
