Are You Demanding a Return to Communist Albania? (ICLA Mission to OSCE)

OSCE Vienna 2013, Part 13: Are You Demanding a Return to Communist Albania?

This is the thirteenth in a series of posts on last week’s OSCE “Supplementary Human Dimension” meeting in Vienna. See the list of links at the bottom of this post for previous articles.

The following intervention was referred to in a previous post that featured a clarification byBürgerbewegung Pax Europa (BPE) on the role of religion in public affairs. In that paper, presented on July 12, BPE was answering the “Right of Reply” intervention by the Holy See.

The video below shows the response by Msgr. Marinko Antolovic of the Holy See to a BPE comment earlier in the day. Msgr. Antolovic protests the request to have religious expression removed from the public space, and asks the BPE representative to elaborate on whether she really desires a return to the anti-religious policies conducted, for example, in communist Albania.

Many thanks to Henrik Ræder Clausen for recording this video, and to Vlad Tepes for processing and uploading it:
