The German government’s open support for prostitution and massive human sex-trafficking for 2006 World Cup in Germany next month has moved a Catholic organization to take action against that travesty of human dignity. The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, C-FAM, has launched a “Stop World Cup Prostitution” campaign. Many thanks, C-FAM, for speaking out.
I am appalled at the magnitude of human degradation through Germany’s prostitution business, greatly amplified by World Cup soccer. Many women are pressured, tricked, or forced into prostitution to support the greed of big business and ruthless masters. What a terrible thing to legalize.
I hope more Catholics and more people of all faiths will speak out against the crime of prostitution, whether it’s legal or not.
