Vogue Spain Can’t Help Pope Benedict Inspire Marriage Vows AOC Sexual Politics
The Pope compared the “aggressive lay mentality, anticlericalism and secularisation” of modern Spain to that of the 1930s, when the church suffered a wave of violence and persecution under the power of General Francisco Franco.
Ordinary Spaniards didn’t appreciate being compared to Franco and declared the Pope’s opinion to be based on ignorance.
About 6500 people attended mass today, about one-quarter of them associated with the Catholic Church. It seems next to impossible for the Pope to turn the tide of emerging lifestyles in Europe, psychologically flogging his flock into shape. Watching the drama unfold is a key focus at Anne of Carversville.
