Australian Catholic Bishops Conference statement on Asylum Seekers

15 May 2014

Australian Catholic Bishops Conference Friday 9 May 2014

'The Australian Catholic Bishops call on parliamentarians of all parties to turn away from these policies, which shame Australia and to take the path of a realistic compassion that deals with both human need and electoral pressure. We call on the nation as a whole to say no to the dark forces, which make these policies possible. The time has come to examine our conscience and then to act differently.'
