Catholic legal group files lawsuit against Italian artist for defamation of the Catholic faith

.- The Thomas More Law Center in Madrid has filed a lawsuit against Italian artist Leo Bassi and the owners of the Alfil Theater in Madrid, where the anti-Catholic play “Revelation” is currently being featured until March 12.

The intention of the theatrical production, according to Bassi himself, is to offend anyone who holds religious beliefs, which is forbidden under Spanish law.  The Center is calling for the show to be immediately suspended.

A spokesman for the Catholic legal association, Javier Perez-Roldan, denounced artists who “are bent on gratuitously offending the deepest sentiments of the vast majority of the public.”

“There are those who think they enjoy impunity from violating the law by hiding behind artistic freedom,” Perez-Roldan said.  “This is a double-standard, since these are the same artist who silence any reasonable and respectful criticism of certain minorities and who nevertheless, want to enjoy the privilege of mocking others in a crude and ridiculous way for the sole purpose of offending the sentiments and beliefs of the majority,” he added.
