The Pope encouraged lawyers not to take divorce cases
He said it during a speech at the Vatican. He assured divorce "has had devastating consequences that propagate in the social organism like a poisonous wound".

The Pope encouraged lawers and judges yesterday not to take divorce cases. He assured divorce "has had devastating consequences that propagate in the social organism like a poisonous wound" and has infected a new generation. He claimed, specifically, that they should refuse to cooperate.

But the Pope went even further: he said his comments apply to all divorce cases and not only to those who involve catholics marriages. He justified this by stating that the insolubility of marrige is a part of the divine and natural order and, therefore, universal.

The Pope admitted that it will be hard for judges to decline their participation in divorce cases because there isn't a "consciousness objection" category legally recognized for divorce. But participating, he insisted, is collaborating to evil, and so judges and lawyers should focus their effort in helping couples make up.
