(Santiago de Compostela) In the autonomous Spanish region of Galicia a new equality law against "discrimination against lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual and intersex people" was effected. The Law 2/2014 cites that regardless of gender, race, religion, opinion or any other personal or social circumstances, Article 14 of the Spanish Constitution affirms the equality of all people. " In reality, this is a law in the service of gay lobby" says Infovaticana. It was put into law with the votes of the Christian Democratic, Partido Popular, which holds 41 of 75 seats in the Galician Parliament. Anyone hoping for a condemnation of the new homo-Promotion Act by the Catholic bishops, waited in vain. "The bishops of Galicia were silent," says Infovaticana .
The law expressly recognizes the five sexual special forms as social groups. Companies could be forced to reserve a certain percentage of jobs for members of each of these five groups.
Christian Democrats Impose Homosexualization on the Country
Family shall be subjected by the Christian Democratic majorityn to a complete redefinition. As a family, includes any form of communication between two people or one or both parents with children, whether heterosexual or homosexual, whether married or living together. The new law affects state subsidies, public competitions, job postings, concessions and licenses.
The aim of the competent organs of the Comunidad Autonoma de Galiciais, by law, is to promote the various affective-sexual forms, different family models and the equal rights of LGBTI people, referred to as particularly "vulnerable" and therefore in need of special protection.
No Press Promotion, if Not LBGTI-friendly
Article 28 defines explicitly, that the "positive" teaching of "homosexuality, bisexuality, transsexuality and intersexuality" is to be encouraged and promote in the culture.
In Article 31, the press subsidies explicitly coupled in the benevolent promotion of homosexuality and rejection of " sexist vocabulary", to mention only two passages of the new law.
Infovaticana asked all five Galician bishops to give an opinion.
Archbishop Julian Barrio of Santiago de Conpostela and thus Metropolitan of Galicia refused to give any opinion. His press secretary finally referred, after obstinate demands, on the scheduled for the end of the month meeting of the bishops of the ecclesiastical province. Archbishop Barrio last month allowed the profanation of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostola by pagan rituals of Shinto priests and Buddhist monks (see separate report Desecrated Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela by Buddhist and Shinto Rites ).
Bishop Manuel Sanchez-Monge of Mondonedo-Ferrol was completely surprised, "I knew nothing of this law." He assured he would address the bishops of Galicia at its next meeting with the question: "I assume that we at the first opportunity, when we [the bishops of Galicia] gather a clear position related to the question."
Bishop Alfonso Carrasco-Ruoco of Lugo was also not prepared to comment. Through his press secretary, he sent word that he would not comment before he had not consulted with other bishops.
Bishop Jose Leonardo Lemos of Orense said through his press secretary that it was "on the subject is one of the pending issues to be addressed at the next meeting of the Ecclesiastical Province. Since it is a regional issue, it may be that a joint statement indicating if this is also not safe because they have not yet dealt with the issue. "
Bishop Luis Quinteiro of Tuy-Vigo could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
As an aside it should be mentioned that the coat of arms of the Autonomous Community of Galicia in contrast to their legislators, is deeply Catholic. It shows a blue shield a golden chalice and above a silver wafer, surrounded by seven silver, Greek crosses.
