Palko reproaches Catholic church

Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) MP Vladimír Palko has accused the Cathoic church of being politically biased.

Palko wrote in the Týždeň magazine that Slovak bishops only support the Robert Fico government, the Sme daily wrote on October 1. After last year’s elections, the head of the Slovak Bishop Conference (KBS), František Tondra, said that if the government wanted to improve the social situation in Slovakia, they would support it.

At the same time, Palko criticised the KDH for not entering a coalition with Fico’s ruling Smer party.

KBS spokesman Jozef Kováčik said that they respected Palko's right to his private opinion, but in no way did they agree with it.

KDH Chairman Pavol Hrušovský said that he personally preferred different ways of communicating with the church, and that he did not agree with Palko's one.
