The Catholic apology raises more questions than answers

Editor,

RE: The Catholic Church: When an apology isn’t an apology (The New Times, November 23).

I share with the writer the same views about the communiqué from the Episcopal Conference of the Catholic Church of Rwanda. First of all, why now and not 20 years ago, and if they did not support the genocide ideology why didn’t they denounce it before during and after killings?

Why is it that they have not helped in apprehending the priests who were involved in the Genocide against the Tutsi and even scrap the title from them?

What were they doing when innocent Tutsi were running for refuge in their churches and got killed there? No

My brother Sunny hit it right on when he wrote; “the bishops biding their time, holding on to the hope that their old ‘partners’ would return, making such an ‘embarrassing’ apology unnecessary”. It’s simple: When evil is happening and those who can make a difference keep quiet, the silence means agreement and complicity!
