MADRID, August 26, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Spain’s largest homosexual organization, the Spanish Confederation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgender People (COLEGAS), has issued a statement condemning “kiss-ins” and other forms of protest carried out by homosexuals against the pope and Catholics at the country’s recently-concluded World Youth Day.
The organization has issued a communiqué not only denouncing the protests, but has called for the “immediate dismissal” of the government’s delegate to Madrid, Dolores Carrión, for allowing the vulgar protests to take place.
The organization noted its differences with the Catholic Church on sexual morals and condoms, but added, “we cannot remain in silence in the face of the violent events against some pilgrims.”
“Whether or not we accept their message, they have come in peace and the public celebration of their faith,” added COLEGAS.
According to COLEGAS the homosexual protesters, who are “profusely subsidized by certain public administrations,” are actually “strongly and violently anticlerical and want to impose their unique way of seeing the world, where there is no liberty or space for religion, not only in the government, but in all facets of public life.”
COLEGAS President Rafael Salazar told the La Vanguardia newspaper during the event that “some of the gay and lesbian groups who are carrying out gratuitous provocations with kisses and distribution of condoms to the pilgrims, and are the same who are always asking for respect, tolerance, and acceptance.”
“How would they react if the government were to accept a counter-protest during Gay Pride in the same Plaza de Chueca out of respect for differing opinions on homosexuality or homosexual marriage?” he asked, and added that the same “tough guys” should go to a mosque, “and see if they have the gall to carry out the same provocation that they do to the Catholics.”
Catholic news sources and blogs have complained that pilgrims were harassed by homosexuals and other anti-Catholic groups with foul language, epithets, “kiss-ins” and promises to “burn” the nation’s episcopal conference.
Tolerance for ya, huh? =.=
For those who missed the posts, here are some images.

All of this vulgarity seems aimed at corrupting children.
The apology is, as we used to say, “a day late and a dollar short”. Were they so sincere, they should have barred their adherents from abusing children and clergy as they did.
This is all because the reaction to the gay demonstrations was so negative that they began backpedaling almost immediately.
I saw a very good editorial cartoon in a Madrid paper: it showed spittle-flecked, hate-filled, screaming gays shouting and waving their fists, and the title was “...and we would also like to thank the volunteers who worked so hard to make the position of the Pope and the Church so rational and appealing to all the young people...”
And that was really the effect of their ugly behavior, and they know it.
I have absolutely no problem with any sexual deviates as long as they practice the respect toward others that they demand for themselves. Although sometimes I wonder if any homosexual can truely respect his/herself, deep down inside.
“he... added that the same tough guys should go to a mosque, and see if they have the gall to carry out the same provocation that they do to the Catholics.
A good question.
exactly — they realise it backfired badly. But too late.
