Cardinal Peter Erdö: When the State interferes with religious practice

"In Europe we have several challenges. But we are working with this issue in particular. It affects not only Jews, but Muslims and Christians as well. During the World Jewish Congress in Budapest the interference of States in religious practices was addressed.”

This is precisely why the European Conference of Bishops has a type of think tank that focuses on religious intolerance in Europe. As an example, Cardinal Erdo talked about the challenges Catholics face in Bosnia.

"The problem of Bosnia is that after the Balkan War the Catholic population has been unable to stay in its homeland. Almost 90 percent were expelled and forced to leave the country. They never had a real opportunity to go back home. Maybe they did in paper, but it was not feasible for them to go back home.”

Although there are many challenges on that continent, Cardinal Péter Erdo says there is still lots to be optimistic about. Proof of that, he says, are public initiatives like project 'One of Us' which aims to protect the unborn in Europe
