Breaking News: Cardinal Rouco Varela attacked by Militant Feminists

What has to happen before the Spanish authorities become aware that their mission is to protect religious freedom? So far the perpetrators of these aggressions are being treated with impunity!

The latest victim was the Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, who was accosted and attacked by five bare-breasted women (from the militant group FEMEN) screaming “abortion is sacred” as the Cardinal entered the Church of St. Justo and Pastor last night to celebrate Mass.

This is a brief list of the attacks Catholic believers have suffered in Spain in just the last month:

  • Desecration of the Church of San Félix, in Sabadell (Barcelona) by angry feminists, who stormed in shouting and holding up pro-abortion placards to disrupt Midnight Mass taking place at the time.
  • Painted abuse to the Virgin Mary in the hostel in Vigo for people in need, run by nuns.
  • Schools and churches attacked with graffiti, desecration and sabotage in various parts of Spain.
  • Attempts to burn the church of Santa Marina, Seville.
  • Reports of the Young Socialists against Bishop Reig Pla for doing no more than publicly defending the Doctrine of the Church.
  • Bishop Sebastian attacked for defending the Christian view of marriage, family and life.
  • The authors of the bombing of the Basilica del Pilar publicly threaten believers, their Catholic churches and their representatives.

These sort of attacks are occurring with ever greater frequency in Spain since the reform of the law to limit abortion was passed by the Spanish Government of Mariano Rajoy.

    In contemporary thinking the haters who oppress women by trying to stop them from doing what they want with their bodies deserve anything they get. Why would authorities intervene?

  2. johnhenrycn says:

    That was a good satire, Michael.

  3. Michael says:

    Amos writes that we need to be carers of sycamore trees. The sycamore fruit needs to be understood by the carer and split at the right time to make it a delicious food. Otherwise something with the potential to be good is very unpleasant. Likewise we need to understand the culture we live in without being caught up in it. I don’t live in Spain but where I live traditional Catholics sponsor things they claim to oppose by driving Fords, using google (cf. alternatives like goodsearch.com) and vote for political parties that support abortion because they think the others can’t win(cf. the Bible’s counsel that we don’t need to win). They also are shocked in these types of situations and talk about the intolerance of the self labelled tolerant (correctly but it misses the point I made above). There is a lot of good to work with (abortion supporters want to do good – they genuinely think they are supporting human rights by letting babies be slaughtered) but we can’t work with it if we have our head in the sand and when we vote for and facilitate the sponsorship of evil.

  4. Michael says:

    By “others” in the context of political parties I mean parties that align with Christian values.

    @ Michael

    In contemporary thinking the haters who oppress women by trying to stop them from doing what they want with their bodies deserve anything they get. Why would authorities intervene?”

    Yes, in contemporary thinking we are the haters, when it is they who are the ones who are the haters, oppressors – hating life itself. They are condemning to death innocent babies at the inception of life…. and a large percentage of their “mothers” to a future of depression and remorse at their actions. In seeming to say that a woman has a right to decide what to do with her “own body”, they fail to see how the majority of those foetuses are female statistics tell us! Don’t these tiny “women” have any rights then?

    In your second comment – if I’m understanding you right – it seems you are saying that Catholics should “practice what they preach” in every word and action, and not just by name. I entirely agree with that, even when doing so hurts.

  6. They did not learn from the demonic vitriol and hatred from the Spanish Civil War I guess. The demons never sleep.

  7. Toadspittle says:

    Interesting point,there, Magdalene Prodigal. I do live in Spain and occasionally wonder how the country manages to function at all – even unsatisfactorily at times – with that demon lurking in the background. Time healing wounds, presumably.
    …But I bet the bare young ladies, comporting themselves with such exuberant vulgarity, would not know Generalissimo Franco from a bull’s foot.

  8. kathleen says:

    Perhaps the reason “the country [Spain] manages to function at all” could be because once the economic boom of the 60’s and 70’s took hold, all of a sudden the subdued reds (under Franco) suddenly realised that there were better ways of spending their time and new-found wealth than murdering nuns and priests and sabotaging Church property.
    Since the last years of the hard cutbacks and economic crisis that has hit Spain badly, those “demons” might be getting stroppy agin…. Although of course most of the original generation that lived through the Spanish Civil War are long dead now.

    (Yes, yes Toad, I know there were some “demons” on both sides of the conflict… and a great majority of totally innocent people that just got dragged into the horrific conflict.)

  9. GC says:

    I can’t help thinking that our chesty young wenches, all 40 of them or so, were thought up especially for the media. Excellent for selling more beer and shampoo. But I could be wrong.

  10. GC says:

    “all 40 of them or so”. This is said to be the number of them worldwide. Still, enough of them to be considered “important” by the media.

  11. Toadspittle says:

    Ah! The good old Numbers Game, GC. “Only” 40 topless harpies, indeed.
    Hardly worth considering, is it?
    However we might consider what a mere 13 insane fanatics did on 9/11/2001.
    Perhaps The Loony Media should not have considered them “important,” their numbers being so pitifully few?

    Of course the Rouco Varela affair was a stunt for the Media.
    What do you expect? That the whole fiasco be ignored?
    People would then say it was a “cover-up,”* wouldn’t they, though?

    *pun?

  12. The Raven says:

    Well, they were topless, Golden; the word alone is enough to encourage a Pavlovian reaction in most men, let alone most newsmen.

  13. Toadspittle says:

    …Not only newsmen – poets!

    Upon Julia’s Clothes
    Whenas in silks my Julia goes,
    Then, then (methinks) how sweetly flows
    That liquefaction of her clothes.
    Next, when I cast mine eyes, and see
    That brave vibration each way free,
    O how that glittering taketh me!

    (Interesting use of the double “then”, don’t we think?)

  14. GC says:

    The Raven @23:53: Well, they were topless, Golden; the word alone is enough to encourage a Pavlovian reaction in most men, let alone most newsmen.

    I can just see the headlines now, Raven

    Naked-breasted small feminist group, set up just for media stunts, pulls naked-breasted media stunt: media of course invited, mainly men reporters attend, request 2014 stunt schedule.

  15. Toadspittle says:

    Clearly you have never written headlines for a living, GC. Stick to the day job.
    But, if you must attempt hackery – a little more brevity, would help.
    It’s also a good idea to make the headline comprehensible.(Though not mandatory.)

  16. johnhenrycn says:

    Yes, GC, could learn from Toad. Here’s the last headline (and report) he wrote for the Toledo Blade before being forced into retirement.

  17. GC says:

    I don’t think Toad ever worked for The Sun, did he, JH?

    I suppose this could mean we are to see more of the same from these shameless hussies in the coming months?

    Is there any truth in the rumour that these lasses earn 1000 euros a month as internationalist stunt-artists whereas the average wage in the Ukraine is only 360 euros?

  18. johnhenrycn says:

    As a mere commenter, I didn’t dare walk that close to the line!
    🙂

  19. Toadspittle says:

    Nope, never worked for The Sun, GC. But was happy on The Daily Mirror for over 20 years, if anyone cares. (I don’t, any more.)
    JH is quite right, and brings a flush of pride to Toad’s little green cheek – one of the finest headlines he ever wrote.
    Unfortunately, we had to ‘kill’ a story about a torchlight anti-abortion march involving two and a half million people down Toledo High Street to get the hat story and headline into the paper, between editions.
    Still, it was worth it..

    Presumably two years without a reply!
