Pope laments 'scorn,' of religion in the West : Religion General

"Sadly, in certain countries, mainly in the West, one encounters in political and cultural circles, as well in the media, scarce respect and at times hostility, if not scorn, directed towards religion and towards Christianity in particular," the pontiff added.

In his address, Benedict said there is an urgent need to promote a "positive and open secularity" which could "foster healthy cooperation and a spirit of shared responsibility," with people who hold religious beliefs.
