The International Federation of Atheists announced this week it will hold the first Council of Atheists in Toledo, Spain, during which it will present a pornographic and blasphemous exhibit entitled Sanctorum, which features images of Christ, the Virgin Mary and the saints.
Organizers said the event will be held in the old church of San Vicente of Toledo, which is now administered by the Toledo Art Circle. The International Federation of Atheists decided to accept an offer by Art Circle president Fernando Barredo to use the church for the exhibit.
Barredo said the Toledo Art Circle has administered the old church of San Vicente for fifteen years and is licensed to host events and exhibits that are free of intervention by public officials. The first Council of Atheists will be held December 7-9.
