Pretoria, 11 February 2010 | SACBC Office for Communication and Media

An Appeal to South African Leaders – is your sexual morality making you a worthy role model for the youth?

"You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honour your father and mother" (Mk. 19:20);

"But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Mt. 5:28);

The Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference expresses its strongest concern of the scandalous behaviour of leaders who shamelessly flout the norms of morality and decency, accepted and expected by the vast majority of people.
