Spanish cardinal reported over ‘hate crime’

Critics want Cardinal Antonio Cañizares charged with encouraging a criminal act

Feminist groups in Spain have called for the government to prosecute Cardinal Antonio Cañizares who recently denounced the influence of the “gay empire” and gender ideology.

In a homily on May 13, Cardinal Cañizares, who is former prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and current archbishop of Valencia, said, “The family is being stalked today, in our culture, by endlessly grave difficulties, while it suffers serious attacks, which are hidden from no one.”

He added: “We have legislation contrary to the family, the acts of political and social forces, to which are added movements and acts by the gay empire, by ideologies such as radical feminism, or the most insidious of all, gender ideology.

“When the family is attacked or is diminished, the most sacred forms of human relationship are perverted.”

According to LifeSiteNews, on Friday members of the Feminist Platform of Alicante formally requested the Spanish government prosecute the cardinal for “inciting discrimination and hatred” through his sermon.

Other organisations, such as Lambda, the LGBT collective of Valencia, and the Collective for the Sexual-Affective Diversity, said they too would file an official complaint with the Office of Hate Crimes, Crux reports.

The Spanish Network for Refugees has also joined the call for Cardinal Cañizares to be prosecuted. The cardinal has previously been critical of open border immigration.

According to CruxNow, the groups want the cardinal charged with “apologia”, a Spanish term for encouraging or defending a criminal act.

In response, the cardinal released a statement asking whether it was “homophobic to defend the family”. He requested “objective” lawyers to assess whether what he said was “against the law” or homophobic. He alsopublished his homily in full.

    What he said is absolutely correct. If Europe doesn’t turn away from the evil agenda she has embarked on, it’s beauty and strength will soon be lost. Europe was built on religious and moral principles and that’s the path she must now revisit if she wants to remain strong. Thank you Cardinal for speaking the truth
