Catholic Church in Spain Prepares to Defend Religious Symbols

Madrid, Spain, Feb 8, 2010 / 06:56 pm (CNA).- The regional vicar of Guadalajara in Spain has welcomed requests by numerous Spanish Catholic organizations to launch a campaign defending the presence of crucifixes and other religious symbols in the country.


From your source -

“…the idea came in response to Spain’s Socialist government’s plan to “regulate” the presence of religious symbols in public areas, a decision which many believe will end up prohibiting them completely.”

So, if true, the regulation of religious symbols is a little step away from religious freedom and towards the secularisation of Spanish society.
