Spanish bishops to support protest of controversial education law

.- Several Spanish bishops have expressed their support for a protest scheduled for November in Madrid against a controversial law on education that is set to be debated in Congress.

Bishop Jose Omella of Logroño told the Spanish daily La Razon that parents have every right to protest because the opinions of parents, teachers and students regarding the proposed law are not being taken into account.

Similarly, Bishop Josep Angel Saiz of Terrasa said that the "right to religious instruction is not a concession but a right belonging to children, young people and parents." "The State cannot move against the majority opinion of the people, and therefore I support the call for protest, which I will support with all my strength," he added.

Speaking from Jerusalem, Bishop Jesus Sanz of Huesca said that "in the coming days the date of the protest will be confirmed, and I will actively participate, and I encourage everybody to do so."

Other bishops have expressed their support, including the Archbishop of Toledo, and the Bishops of Pamplona and Jaen.

The proposed law on education would remove religion as part of the standard curriculum in public schools.
