Vatican intervenes in polemic between Famiglia Cristiana and Berlusconi


The Vatican said it did not agree with an editorial in the influential Catholic magazine, Famiglia Cristiana, after the Italian government angrily denied its claim that fascism might be resurfacing within the government, ANSA reports.

“Published by the Paulist Fathers, Famiglia Cristiana has recently been critical of the conservative government of Premier Silvio Berlusconi, especially in regard to its decision to use the military in a policing role and to fingerprint gypsy children.

The weekly said the fingerprinting of children brought to mind a famous photo of a Jewish child in the Warsaw ghetto showing the Nazi identification number tattooed on his arm. Leading members of the government coalition responded by accusing the weekly of being ‘Catholic-Communist’ and being out of touch with Italian citizens who want greater security.”
