Religious freedom bill an attack against Christians, Spanish bishop warns

.- Bishop Adolfo Gonzalez of Almeria has criticized the Spanish government’s proposal to reform the country’s laws on religious freedom, saying it would be an attack on Christians under the pretext of “democracy.”

“When you attempt to make all religious equal, as if all had the same historical and social significance in the development of a people, you reveal the fallacy of a falsely democratic egalitarianism,” the bishop said.

The regulation of religious freedom “will never be just or democratic if it is directed against the mostly Christian identity of a society.”

A true respect for freedom of worship ought to allow “religious faith to inspire all areas of life without reducing it to the mere freedom of subjective belief,” Bishop Gonzalez argued.
