The National Socialist (Nazi) Party leader of Spain, Zapatero, who says he is going to fight terrorism with feminism, plans to sever all ties with the Church while simulataneously increasing funding for Mohammedan terrorism: Funding for Church to be slashed by Spanish. (Via LGF)
The Spanish government sparked a furious row yesterday after it emerged that it had drawn up a timetable to halve state funding of the Roman Catholic Church and to ban crucifixes from public buildings.This is outrageous in itself. But to then simultaneously increase funding for the religion of beheading, genocide, rape, and Jihad -- is, well, doubly outrageous.
The Socialist government has already pedged to confront the Church ideologically and fiscally and to transform Spain into a fully secular society by scrapping the Church's "privileged position in society".
The newspaper El Mundo reported yesterday that the government has now drawn up a timetable to break the bonds, removing any lingering hopes that it might reach an accommodation.
The government plans to put an end to the arrangement whereby Spaniards can offer a percentage of their taxes to the Church. This arrangement contributes £54 million a year to Church funds.
Further enraging conservatives, the government has drawn up plans to finance the teaching of Islam in state-run schools and to give funds to mosques on the grounds that it will create greater understanding of the country's one million Muslims.
Although Spain has been a Catholic country since the expulsion of the Moors in 1492 it has also long had a tradition of anti-clericalism that flared violently during the civil war. The old saying was that "a Spaniard is always behind a priest, either with a candle or a stake."
