Spanish Government Funds Anti-Catholic Rally for Pope’s Visit

by Hilary White

VALENCIA, June 12, 2006 ( – The socialist government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero will be staging a homosexual conference on the day before the expected arrival of Pope Benedict XVI. The pope is to arrive in Spain July 8-9 to attend the 5th meeting of the World Family Forum in order to explore ways to bolster the integrity of the family, which the pope has said is under assault across the world.

A consortium of homosexuals and leftist anti-Catholic groups, with the help of €17,000 from the Employment and Social Affairs ministry, and the University of Valencia, have organized the conference to counter the Family Forum meeting organized by Spanish family supporters and the Vatican.

The Archbishop of Valencia condemned the homosexual conference – which will include a public “gay pride” demonstration – as “an offensive provocation” to Pope Benedict and the Church.
