“Marriage can only be between man and a woman,” said Agustin Cruz, 41. “It’s a divine and natural law. Marriage of homosexuals is a lie. You have to call things by their name. The first lie begins when you start calling queers ‘gays.’ They’re queers, it’s not an insult, it’s the definition of that race of people.”
Banners reading “Family=Man+Woman” and “A mother and father for every child” could be seen up and down the demonstration, which was attended by families and individuals of all ages. Handfuls of priests and nuns mixed with lay protesters.
Chants for Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero to resign resounded continuously.
“This demonstration is the people’s response to the government’s provocations,” said Fr. Jose Ramon Velasco. We’re not against homosexuals but allowing them to marry degrades matrimony.
“And they shouldn’t have the right to adopt because if those children turn out to be homosexual, who will be to blame, the government?”
Velasco compared the bill to the beginnings of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
“Back then the majority of people also backed Hitler just like the majority back this law,” he said. “I’m serious, give it time and it will destroy the moral fiber of Spain and the West.”
Because, as Bill McCabe notes– “Gay marriage, gassing Jews…what’s the difference?”
