HUMAN RIGHTS: TOMASI (HOLY SEE), THE RISK OF "NEW HUMAN RIGHTS" (2)

Tomasi said that "by speaking of the right to life, of respect for the family, of marriage as the union between a man and a woman, of freedom of religion and conscience, of the limits of the authority of the State before fundamental values and rights, nothing new or revolutionary is said and both, the letter and the spirit of the Declaration are upheld, and coherence with the nature of things and the common good of society is preserved". According to mgr. Tomasi, "it is one thing to affirm a legitimate pluralism of “forms of freedom”, and another to deny any universality or intelligibility to the nature of man or to the human experience". The Permanent Observer of the Holy See then asked for a better implementation of the Declaration: "In a world of too many hungry people, too many violent conflicts, too many persons persecuted for their beliefs, there remains a long road to walk and the duty to eliminate every discrimination. The family can be the first ‘agency’ of protection and promotion of human dignity and fundamental rights. This is in line with the UDHR as well as with the Holy See’s Charter of the Rights of the Family, whose 25th anniversary is celebrated this year".” ” ” ” ” “
