Bishops warn Lithuanian priests to refrain from political agitation

Lithuanian Bishops’ Conference called on its members to refrain from political agitation, after priests have increasingly used social media to voice their political opinions.

The controversy began when a dissident priest, Robertas Grigas, wrote on Facebook: “Saulius Skvernelis’ collective farm kolkhoz [sic] lost, but Ingrida [Šimonytė’s] gay night club could win. Although, Gitanas [Nausėda’s] bank is better”.

Other priests used social media to agitate against Ingirda Šimonyte for her alleged ‘ultra-liberal’ views.

Lithuania is due to vote in the second round of presidential election on May 26.
