|Vatican||CARDINAL CRITICISES CATHOLIC POLITICIANS WHO "DESTROY LIFE"|
The head of the Pontifical Council for the Family has insisted that politicians who call themselves Catholic must be consistent with what they believe in both their public and private life.|
Cardinal Alfonso López Trujillo told a press conference for the forthcoming Jubilee of Families that "everything collapses" when a politician compromises his respect for life. "instead of contributing to the construction of society, the politician destroys it."
"Aristotle sais a politician is an architect of society," he added. "One cannot look at the action of a public figure, above all in matters of family law, without asking what good he pursues, what kind of sons and daughters, and parents of families does he want to build the future."
