Spain: Socialist Party wants to ban Religion classes from all schools, including private ones

Article main imageThe deep-rooted hatred against religion, and in particular the Catholic Church, continues to characterize the Spanish political left even 75 years after the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). As Spain prepares for its general election in December, Pedro Sánchez, the leader of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE), has said that, if elected, his government will ban religion courses from both public and private schools.

General elections will take place Dec. 20, for all the seats in the lower house of Spain’s parliament.

The last time PSOE was in government it has used the occasion to re-define marriage (so as to includes same-sex “marriages”) and parenthood (so as to turn it into a mere social “role”, to be filled out by whoever feels apt for it, including same-sex couples), and to radically legalize abortion. At the same time it has led Spain into a profound economic and social crisis from which the country still struggles to recover.
