Toledo Cardinal: Spain on a path to destruction

.- In an interview with the Spanish weekly “Alba,” the Archbishop of Toledo, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares, said, “Like Europe, Spain will either be Christian or it won’t.”

In the interview to be published this Sunday, the cardinal underscored that the Christian faith is the foundation of Spanish identity and that therefore, without the faith, “Spain may be something else, but it will cease to be Spain.”

Cardinal Cañizares said “a plan to destroy Spain” exists and that the Spanish state, which provides the least amount of financial assistance for the family in all of Europe, “shows that it does not see the family as fundamentally important.”  He said the government’s current policy is “suicidal.”

He pointed out that “quick divorce” and homosexual unions made equivalent to marriage by the current Socialist legislation “degrade and debilitate” the institution of the family.  “International observers warn that Spain has become a laboratory,” the Cardinal warned.

“It would be against my conscience and against who I am if I stopped speaking out, if my preaching were not what it is,” he said during the interview.
