"Pope-hating Spaniards"

Although not strictly within the bounds of "blogging the Catholic Church in England and Wales", many Catholics from the UK have travelled out to Valencia, Spain for the fifth World Meeting of Families at which Pope Benedict XVI will celebrate Mass and meet pilgrims from around the world including the UK. Also there was an article on this blog (click here) about the "alternative" meetings happening in response to the Pope's visit. Thus it seems appropriate to link this article entitled "Pope-hating Spaniards" (click here), taken from The Cafeteria is Closed, about the hostile response from some Spaniards to Our Holy Father's visit (see pic below).

One comment from this post read:

"Because "tolerance" means tolerating only minority religions, while despising the majority ones. Can you imagine the uproar this would have caused if there were these kinds of protests against a Muslim leader?"

Hmm... I wonder if there's sadly something in that?
