The Bishop of Peterborough speaks to his flock about the Human Rights Complaint

Says Bishop De Angelis:

I fail to understand how secular powers and government agencies should think they are in a position to tell the Church that she is wrong in her internal rules and regulations, even though these have directed and shaped the life of the Church during the last 2000 years. However, this is what we face today. If the Human Rights Tribunal should choose to interfere with the Church's governance, this will be most shocking. The Tribunal has no authority to place itself as an arbiter of canonical precepts.

And what's going to happen if the Human Rights Tribunal Rules against him? I hope he holds the line!
