Catholic Church vs. Istanbul Convention

Czech Rep. is still struggling with the ratification of the Istanbul Convention (Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence).

Three changes in Czech law are still waiting to be accepted – penalties for forced marriages, forced sterilization and the adjustment of the limitation period for prosecution for female circumcision. There is no reason to obstruct you can say.

Civic initiative “Traditional Czech family” went into holy battle under their motto “FAMILY – NATION – PEACE” to save traditional family model father-mother-child:
“By this transnational mechanism children will be stolen from any family and it is irreversible!
Information is, of course, strictly classified so the public does not know about the crimes of this neo-fascist system!
Ratifying the Istanbul Convention is worse than signing the death sentence over the countless defenseless children!”

These confused desperates are everywhere so it is no surprise. But what was unexpected was a sermon by Provost of the Chapter of All Saints at Prague Castle and former Minister of Education Petr Piťha who said:

They will take your children and not tell you where they hid them, where they were sold, where they are prisoners. False accusation is enough.

Determining the sex of your newborn baby by looking into their lap will be canceled.
Your child itself will decide on your own sex, so you will be obliged to educate them sexlessly and you will not be able to give them even a name.

For every disagreement you will be deported to the remedial labor camps of an extermination character!

Homosexuals will be declared superior to the ruling class, you will belong to the inferior auxiliary class and work according to the instructions of powerful elites that will determine what is and what is not allowed to be said.

The document has been described as dictatorial and the authors have been accused of Nazism and Marxism.

Quite unbelievable, isn’t it? Cardinal Dominik Duka reaction was expected.
Meanwhile Czech Women’s Lobby filed a criminal complaint against Piťha for his statements (deliberate propagation of the alarm message, hoax).
Cardinal Duka then supported Piťha, just like Episcopal Conference of Czech Republic.

Similar arguments were cited by the government’s office in September as a myth.

Activist Aneta Petani peacefuly protested against the Mass of Petr Piťha, in the middle of the mass served by Cardinal Dominik Duke at St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle. She came forward in front of Cardinal with a crown of thorns on her head and knelt in her bra and pants in front of the altar.
“Why did you put a crown of thorns on us?” and “Love to Truth” was written on her body.
A few minutes later security took her from the cathedral.
