Pedro Sanchez aims to remove Catholicism from public life
Political changes in the West mostly occur through the ballot box. A week ago, however, one exception to that rule took place in the Kingdom of Spain. On June 1, the governing People's Party lost a motion of censure which amounts to a vote of no confidence without an election, forcing Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to resign and the main opposition leader Pedro Sanchez to assume the post and form a government.
The People's Party, which had won the last three elections in Spain, lost the vote to a coalition of opposition parties, ranging from the Socialist, Communist and separatist parties. It seems a tall task for Pedro Sanchez to be able to govern with such a coalition of diverse parties, particularly the separatists. However, in one area it seems the coalition is in total agreement: anti-Catholicism.
This new government under the Socialist Workers Party, backed primarily by Unidos Podemos long before coming to power, have been advocating a long series of anti-Catholic policies. In 2015, for example, the Socialist Party proposed a ban on religious courses in public schools and even private schools. The new prime minister has also called for the Church to pay property taxes and eliminate any tax preferences for the Church. Although these policies have long been proposed by many within the Socialist Workers Party, the other left-leaning party backing Sanchez has been more radical in their approach.

Franco didn’t kill enough communists.
He didn't kill the ones who procreate.
Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
Bergoglio will be happy about it.

Spain is no longer a Christian country.
Voids, however, always get filled.
Correspondingly, Spain is en route to becoming an Islamic country, and that is dangerous.
“The Church was a frequent target of the revolutionary left in the Republic and in the War. Only during the Civil War revolutionaries destroyed/burned some 20,000 churches -including several cathedrals-, also church ornamentation (artworks, paintings, tombs), books, archives, and palaces. Vast number of affected buildings are today defunct.”
For a country that was once the most conservative its kind of ironic how antitheist Spain has become. Its government seems to take a far more active direct role against Christianity than even most of the other European countries.

I think this current behavior is over-compensation for the Inquisition....
