(ANSA) - Rome August 21 - Italian Catholic weekly Famiglia
Cristiana slammed audiences at an annual conference organized by
an influential lay religious body for allegedly applauding
certain speakers simply because the powerful figures were paying
homage to the movement with their presence, and not for the
messages they were conveying.
The top-selling weekly made the strong statements on
audience reaction at the annual meeting of the Catholic movement
Comunione e Liberazione held in the north-eastern coastal town
of Rimini each August in an editorial after Italian Prime
Minister Mario Monti was applauded.
"All past Meeting attendees, at each annual event, have
always been welcomed in this way," Famiglia Cristiana said in
its editorial.
"Little does it matter if the nation is on the brink of a
precipice: it would appear the point is to keep on dancing, but
only because the powerful figure is there, paying homage to the
people of Comunione and Liberazione."
The magazine went on to cite concrete examples, including
the ways in which former prime ministers and central and local
government officials such as Francesco Cossiga, Giulio
Andreotti, Silvio Berlusconi and Bettino Craxi were welcomed.
