“Insert income must be used in serious or temporary situations to guide people to self-sufficiency, otherwise we will create a large community of subsidized family members”, José Ornelas defended
The President of the Conference of Bishops of Portugal (CEP) and the Bishop of Setúbal believe that social integration income must increasingly be linked to people’s re-qualification.
In an interview with Lusa News Agency, José Ornelas said: “Insert income must be used in serious or temporary situations to guide people to self-sufficiency, because if we don’t plan to create a large subsidized family community”, when he was appointed one year since he was appointed Since the chairman of CEP.
José Ornelas believes that people must be the author and protagonist of their own development.
He believes that the welfare state should not leave anyone behind in any way, whether it is in terms of life needs or in terms of its contribution to society for building a better world.
When asked about the diocese under his leadership, José Ornelas was very picky about the distribution of wealth in the Setúbal region because the peninsula is included in the Lisbon Nut and Tejo Valley (systematic assessment The wealth of the country).
“This is a story where two chickens are divided by two margins. One eats three-quarters of the chicken and the other eats the rest,” he said.
“The Setúbal Peninsula is losing billions of euros,” he emphasized, adding that the company will go to Alentejo, where they can receive 80% of the assistance, even non-refundable funds, while in Setú In the Bar Peninsula, subsidies can reach up to 40%.
He went on to say that Setubal is already at a good level and has now returned to one of the worst GDPs in the country.
In José Ornelas’s view, everything was decided on the basis of Terreiro do Paço, making Setúbal a peninsula serving Lisbon, and a centralized model said it didn’t work.
“It’s impossible,” he said, and warned of the need to follow what he considers to be a good example, as in the case of the Faculty of Technology at the University of Lisbon, which has already bet on the installation of Tahoe on the South Bank.
José Ornelas has been in charge of the Diocese of Sardina in 2015, when he was ordained as bishop, and he was previously responsible for the congregation of the priests of the Dehonians worldwide.
