Massive outcry against attacks by gays on family and religious beliefs

.- In an effort to denounce the leaders of a “Gay Pride Parade” in Madrid for crimes against family associations and slander against Catholics, in only five days more than 1,000 people have downloaded a sample protest letter prepared by the civil rights website Hazteoir.org. During the parade, dozens of gay activists engaged in obscene and violent acts, while many others carried signs threatening the bishops and family groups and calling Benedict XVI a Nazi.

The sample letter denouncing the parade calls on public officials to investigate alleged crimes committed during the event and to identify the government officials and homosexual leaders who organized the parade and failed to condemn such actions.

On July 7, Hazteoir.org brought a complaint before Spain’s Attorney General supported by photographs and videos of the parade.  The complaint was accepted and is under consideration by Justice officials in Madrid.

Hazteoir.org says the lawsuit is based on statutes in the Penal Code that criminalize “provocation of discrimination, hatred and violence against religious beliefs.”  After reviewing the case, officials will decide whether or not to bring charges against the organizers of the parade.
