UN 'overstepped the mark' on Church ethical doctrine (see previous).

(ANSA) - Vatican City, February 7 - The UN's Committee for the Rights of the Child's scathing report on clerical sex abuse overstepped its brief to criticise Catholic ethical doctrine, Vatican Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said Friday. The Committee, in criticising bioethical issues as well as decades of abuse and cover-ups, voiced "its own ideological vision on sexuality" in "moral judgements on abortion and contraception", he said.
