Youth Rejects Darkness In Prepartion for WYD

World Youth Day Rejects Big Brother's Offer

COLOGNE (Cathnews) - World Youth Day organizers have rejected an “offer” by the producers of a German television program called “Big Brother” to house pilgrims on the set of the popular reality show.

In a report from the Catholic News Agency, a spokesman for WYD 2005, Matthias Kopp, said organizers refused the proposal made by Edemol, the producer of the program, which offered to let young people sleep on the set of the show in exchange for allowing some of them to appear on the program.

“A format such as that of Big Brother, which shows disrespect for people, is not appropriate for conveying the ideas and objectives of World Youth Day,” said Kopp.

World Youth Day will be held August 16-21 in Cologne.
