Spain, Europe: Secular Government persecutes Catholics via "Crucifix" ruling

(Catholic Watchdog South Africa; c.f. EuroNews (Secular) 25/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

In a "historic" ruling, a Spanish court has ruled to allow to have crucifixes removed from classrooms in schools and even universities, according to it's "secular" constitution, the representation of the Catholic church in the country sees it as persecution.

Spain also recently created a child purely to be a blood bank, as it is gradually betraying its Catholic heritage via a secularism, which is not a treaty between diverse groupings, but a tool used to silence religion, by a government and legal system which sees moral objections of religious to be threats. Spain allows abortion, and "marriage" between homosexuals. In allowing the first, politicians voting for it more than likely excommunicated themselves, just as ordinary citizens would for voting for them knowing what they would do. The second also shows what the Catholic church considers a heretical view. According to the papacy: religion must never be repressed: it is not the role of the state to define moral or scientific truths, but to listen to those who specialize in these fields.

This is the latest in a long line of judgments against church, morality and God. Secularism is not the destruction of religion, but a system where religious groups live in harmony. Spain therefore cannot be defined as secular, but simply as having an irreligious, even atheistic legal system, and administration, if this ruling is allowed, as it has been.

As it is, the constitution allows for separation of church and state: L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican state's national newspaper, has called this a judgment: motivated purely by hatred of religion itself, and not by the constitution of Spain, which EuroNews notes: allows for separation of religion and state.
