The civil rights website HazteOir.org announced it will file a lawsuit against the organizers of the Gay Pride 2007 parade for “offending religious sentiments,” as participants insulted and ridiculed Catholics and Catholic beliefs.
“The Gay Pride 2007 march in Madrid on June 30 brought together a complete cast of mockery, offenses and threats against those who do not accept the dogmas of the most powerful lobby. Once again this year Catholics were victims of most of the diatribes,” the website stated.
Participants in parade derided bishops and priests and “labeled those who believe in marriage as a union between a man and a woman as ‘homophobes’.”
The website also denounced the city government of Madrid for financial supporting the event despite its record of mocking Catholics in recent years.
