If it’s not Christian, it’s secular propaganda
Bishop Philip Tartaglia, president of the National Communications Commission of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, has written a letter to every parish in Scotland decrying the media for pushing a “secular and humanistic agenda”.
Repeating the dubious statistics produced by the last census, Tartaglia believes that “over two thirds” of Scots are actually Christians, and that the proportion of people who work the media does not reflect this, leading to a “fundamental disconnection between the provider and the consumer”.
Whether this is true or not, the Bishop endorses a peculiar, Orwellian-sounding policy of “info-ethics”:
It is crucial that those who work in this field seek to understand the moral and ethical view of humanity shared by those of us who believe in God.
He didn’t explain what believing in god had to do with ethics.
