La Plata (Agenzia Fides) - The Catholic Church in Argentina has broken its ties with the Scout Association of the country due to recent changes in its educational project concerning the concept of family, and issues such as abortion. The interruption of the relationship was made public through a letter published by local media.
In a message addressed to the bishop of the city of La Plata (in the great Buenos Aires), His Exc. Mgr. Héctor Aguer, Cardinal Mario Poli, said that there is "no turning back" in the disagreement with the Scout Association of Argentina after several months of warnings (see Fides, 14/12/2016).
