Edinburgh’s Archbishop Leo Cushley has thanked parents and parishioners from across the Scottish capital for their efforts to fight a proposal to strip religious representatives to the city’s education committee of their voting rights.
A motion to remove the voting rights of religious representatives on education boards is “a serious threat to the identity” of Catholic schools in the Scottish capital, according to a spokesperson of the Archdiocese of St. Andrews & Edinburgh.
Most people in Scotland consider themselves to be non-religious and increasing numbers of people raised as Christian are leaving the faith, according to the results of a survey published on Tuesday.
A new pro-life office in the Archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh – the first such office in a Scottish diocese – aims to promote a pro-life consensus in the country.
