I’m sure Father DeValk and Bishop Henry would agree.
“The new Conservative office – which will publicly criticize regimes that mistreat religious minorities – is in part a workaround to avoid the pushback the Tories previously encountered from the Foreign Affairs bureaucracy. Conservatives privately complain that civil servants in some instances resisted their efforts to raise concern about religious persecution.”
Resistance within Foreign Affairs? That’s an interesting aspect I haven’t seen mentioned prior to this article, I wonder what darkness needs illumination there. Perhaps the Foreign Affairs bureaucracy should be the the first target.
