Leading Church Official: Foreign Minister Political Prostitute

Klaas van der Kamp, the secretary general of the Council of Churches (Raad van Kerken), has accused Maxime Verhagen, leader of the Christian Democrats and minister of Foreign Affairs, of committing political prostitution. Van der Kamp did so at the Church Day of the province of Zeeland. He says that the proposed cabinet of the Christian Democrats (CDA) and the liberals (VVD) – with outside support of the Freedom party (PVV) – focuses on earning money at the expense of human values. The Council of Chuches groups a number of denominations among which the two largest, the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant Church Netherlands. (PKN)
